SEARRP Staff members Nur Ili Alia binti Ab Doroh and Sui Peng Heon recently had the chance to attend the Merdeka Award 2020/21 ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in Kuala Lumpur to accept an award on behalf of SEARRP for conservation, sustainable management and restoration of Malaysia’s forests. The event was graced by His royal highness Sultan Nazrin Shah of Perak and Her royal highness Tuanku Zara Salim of Perak, and attended by other award winners who are all working to make a difference to Malaysian society. This recognition and award will allow SEARRP to continue expanding our work in conservation, capacity building, environmental education, outreach and training. In addition, it will enable us to extend our focus to Peninsular Malaysia with a new project that focuses on capacity building in the Central Forest Spine. SEARRP would not have been able to achieve this level of recognition without the hard work and contribution of our entire team, which serves as the backbone for SEARRP and all our partner universities, institutions and organisations which have supported us through the years.
THE MALAM APRESIASI PERHUTANAN 2021 – Forestry Appreciation Night
The “Malam Apresiasi Perhutanan 2021” (Forestry Appreciation Night 2021) was held on 30 November 2021 at the Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC). This event is an annual activity for the Sabah Forestry Department in recognizing not only their Staff who have shown excellent work performance during the year but also to the Sustainable Forest Management Licensee (SFM) Projects that meet compliance and to recognise Conservation Partners who are actively involved in the conservation and preservation of our forests. 10 NGOs across Sabah received the Conservation Partners appreciation, including SEARRP. The event was attended by the Chief Minister of Sabah, Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji bin Noor.
