Our local communities work is spread across the indigenous, rural and urban communities. All our initiatives with local communities are geared towards empowering them in ensuring better governance of important habitats or species. For example, our work with the indigenous communities of Semai in Gopeng was with the aim of stopping them from harvesting the buds of the Rafflesia flowers and selling the Rajah Brooke Birdwing butterflies. Our work provided them with an alternative income to sustain their livelihoods.
