Helping MYCAT protect the wild Tigers in Malyasia!

We have joined up with MYCAT in Malaysia to help to protect the few remaining wild Tigers using the wildlife corridor near Taman Negara. Volunteer have the opportunity to join CAT Walks – jungle trekking in an ancient rainforest as well as visiting the Batek Tribe who live in the jungle  – hosting a conservation education session before sleeping out with them overnight.

tigerThe wildlife corridor that volunteers trek is the last rainforest connection between Taman Negara and the main mountain range and is currently used by wild animals like a highway. Without the wildlife corridor connection the populations of Tigers, Elephants, Sun Bear’s and Leopards would be doomed. By jungle trekking in this area of lush tropical rainforest volunteers presence acts as a deterrent to poachers whilst also collecting vital data on animal tracks and signs.

As part of this three week Malaysia Experience volunteers also travel to the beautiful Perhentian islands to snorkle and protect the green sea turtle population through photo ID research and night beach patrols.

Volunteers not only experience the best parts of these amazing designations (Taman Negara and the Perhentian Ialsnds) but also learn about and help the animals and people that make these places so special. This is a must do volunteer opportunity for any nature lover visiting Malaysia.

Gemma

A truly life changing experience, working on wildlife and community volunteering projects in Africa over 15 years ago, convinced Gemma Whitehouse to give up her job as a Marketing Manager for an international organisation and use her skills and expertise to set up a company that would offer others the same amazing opportunities with a service second to none - thus Amanzi Travel was born.
