Sabah Parks, Malaysia, joins APAP
APAP welcomed Sabah Parks of Sabah, Malaysia, as its newest Member in September.
Sabah Parks is responsible for the management of six marine parks, including Tun Mustapha Park, which at nearly 900,000 hectares is Malaysia’s largest marine park. It also manages three terrestrial parks, one of which (Kinabalu Park) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and another (Crocker Range Park) a Biosphere Reserve. The 54-year-old organisation brings to APAP a wealth of experience in managing a range of different landscapes and ecosystems, from sand cays and coral reefs to the highest peak between the Himalayas and New Guinea, and is considered a role model in tropical biodiversity management.
