24th Oct 2020, by Roots & Shoots Malaysia

Today is #WorldGibbonDay Malaysia has 5 species of gibbons - all of which are classified as Endangered. They face an array of threats which include deforestation and unbridled urban expansion.

Report any sale of primates to the authorities. Primates are not pets. Do not feed any gibbons or wild animals. This makes them dependant on humans...

19th Sep 2020, by Roots & Shoots Malaysia

With the ongoing battle against Covid-19, we are finding more litter in our rivers and public spaces. This puts a tremendous strain on our already fragile eco-system with many disposables taking a long time to break down. What can you do? 1) Use less. The more recyclable and reusable items we can utilise in our daily lives, the better it will be for our environment. 2) Dispose of your rubbish responsibly. Litter on the streets makes its way into the drains and the rivers, causing sever pollu...

Today is #OrangutanDay Orangutans are classified as critically endangered which is one step before being extinction. They could very well not exist in the near future for your children to see - a thing of the past like black or white films, except that they may never come back. 1) The threats faced by orangutans involve deforestation, the palm oil trade where most of their prime habitat spots have been converted to palm oil plantations, the illegal pet trade, and illegal poaching. 2) In the w...

29th Jul 2020, by Roots & Shoots Malaysia

Today is an important day - it is Global Tiger Day. And we need to talk about these urgent facts: 1) There are fewer than 150 tigers left in the wild at optimistic estimates. Compare that number with the number we had in the 1950’s - over 3000. 2) Which means, in just 7 decades, we have efficiently and effectively wiped out 95% of the Malayan Tiger population. At this rate of decline, many calculate that it is only 3 - 5 years before we successfully eradicate the Malayan Tiger from our jungl...

Mangroves cover less than 2% of Malaysia’s total land area but do so much for us. Mangrove jungles are one of the most efficient carbon stores, holding as much as 40% more than dry land forest. They also serve as natural barriers against tsunamis and allow many marine life to spawn. Yet they still face threats such as land reclamation and forest clearing. What can you do? Dispose of rubbish responsibly Waste that does not get disposed of properly eventually finds its way to the rivers and ...
