Dyk That Endangered Species Also Include Trees? Aq..

 


#DYK that endangered species also include trees? Aquilaria microcarpa, an agarwood or gaharu tree species, is native to Borneo and protected under the Sarawak Wild Life Protection Ordinance 1998. As a species highly desired for its high economic value for medicine, perfume and incense, it has been facing the threat of extinction and is currently listed as endangered under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. WWF-Malaysia is working with a few partners to improve communities’ livelihood and better conserve orang-utan habitat by planting gaharu trees on degraded farm land. For example, at Rumah Manggat – a longhouse located in Batang Ai, Sarawak – agarwood is being cultivated as a supplementary means of generating income for the community.

Please support this exemplary local community who are making headlines as orang-utan conservation champions by planting agarwood trees. Learn more: https://community.wwf.org.my/project/3/updates Thank you
