Top Tree Services have donated to help save the rainforest.
The Malua BioBank is the world’s largest tropical conservation bank and seeks to rehabilitate and preserve 34,000 hectares (80,000 acres) of critical habitat for orangutans and other threatened species.
Located in Malaysia on the island of Borneo, the Malua BioBank was created through an innovative partnership with the Sabah State Government as an investment in the rehabilitation and protection of the Malua Forest Reserve.
Borneo’s rainforests are considered to be amongst the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet and store vast amounts of carbon dioxide.
They are home to thousands of species that are found nowhere else in the world. The loss of these forests through deforestation would mean the loss of unique species.
It is estimated that Borneo’s rainforest supports 6,000 plants, 44 mammals, 46 birds and 19 amphibian and fish species that are found nowhere else in the world. New species are continuously being discovered by scientists on the island. Between 1995 and 2010 more than 600 species were discovered - that is 3 species each month.
Our Biodiversity Conservation Certificates protect 40 square metres of forest within the reserve, it all counts.
