“Up to 22 million hectares of forest in Borneo are under threat of being felled by 2030, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has warned. The combined area, covering forests in Malaysia and Indonesia, is nearly twice the size of Sarawak or the peninsular. The WWF’s Saving Forests at Risk report describes it as “a major deforestation front”.

Why do we need your help?
- Our world and its inhabitants need clean and healthy air to survive.
- Trees give wildlife their food and habitat.
- The preservation of nature will help give our children a better future.
The 3313 project is a public campaign for the reforestation of tropical rainforest trees in Malaysia. The project encourages individuals and corporate groups worldwide to contribute by adopting rainforest trees that are endemic, rare and indigenous in Malaysia.
“3313” project means that a contribution towards one tree will cost RM33 per tree. All proceeds will be channeled towards the Tropical Rainforest Living Collection (TRLC) projects in Malaysia. Through 3313, we will help you plant your tree(s) on our Living Collection sites.
There are three Living Collection sites in Malaysia now:
- Tropical Rainforest, The Living Collection Merisuli, Lahad Datu, Sabah
- Windows into the Wild: Tropical Rainforest Living Collection Banun, Amanjaya Forest Reserve, Perak
- The Tropical Rainforest Living Collection & Rafflesia Conservation, Lojing Forest Reserve, Kelantan
We need your help to save our forests. It may take decades for trees to mature but reforestation holds real promise for confronting global warming.
Feel good about planting a tree. We have an overriding need to work to protect the forests that are already there and prevent them from being chopped down.
