What We Do
When a wildlife habitat area in Kuala Selangor was proposed to be converted into a golf course in 1987, MNS stepped in and established it as a nature park instead. Now, the Kuala Selangor Nature Park (KSNP) thrives as a tourist destination and educational resource, instilling interest in and understanding of Kuala Selangor’s unique habitats in visitors. It has since become a sanctuary to many species of flora and fauna, such as the endangered Silvered Leaf Monkey (Presbytis cristata), which KSNP has adopted as its logo.
The uniqueness of the park is evident and it is also very accessible. There are many trails of varying distances, and visitors get to explore different habitats as there are bird hides and watch towers situated around the manmade 25 acre brackish water lake system. Many local and migratory bird species are found in the park. Visitors can also take a stroll along the Mangrove walkway which takes you into the heart of the mangrove forest where you can closely observe the flora and fauna that are unique to this habitat.
Situated only 20km away from the heart of KL’s city centre, the KSNP is an ideal place to escape to where a greater appreciation for the environment among the public can be encouraged.
