Guess what❓⁉️

The founder of Tanah Aina Resort 🏞🏘, Puan Sri Shariffa Sabrina Syed Akil 👩🏽‍💼 is also the President for PEKA 🌱 Malaysia 🇲🇾

So, what’s PEKA 🌱 Malaysia 🇲🇾 you may ask❓⁉️

It’s an NGO (aka Non-governmental/ non-profit making organisation) known as Pertubuhan Pelindung Khazanah Alam Malaysia 🇲🇾

PEKA 🌱 was formed with objectives,

  • To stop ✋ 🛑 the destruction of natural resources💚
  • To defend the rights of environment & be the voice of nature💚
  • To create awareness, strength & assurance in defending the natural 💚 heritage

PEKA’s logo symbolises the shape of a leaf 🌱 that provides an ultimate inspiration of PEKA 🌱 Malaysia 🇲🇾

PEKA 🌱 means “sensitive” in Bahasa Melayu i.e. National language of Malaysia 🇲🇾 & it is rightly suitable towards its objectives to achieve ✅

PEKA 🌱 have been actively in community activities ensuring preservation of rainforests 🌳🌳 in particularly replanting of lost rainforests 🌳🌳 as it’s really critical because we are losing most of the rainforests 🌳🌳 fast😔😌

So, SORR 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️2018 is gonna be its 6️⃣th year & will be held on 24 March 2018 at Hutan Simpan Gading🌳🌳, Hulu Selangor. UMW Toyota 🚗🚘 & Concorde Hotel Shah Alam 🏢 as its main sponsors💰💪🏻

“Apart from having the race 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️to start & end at the Pelangi Hill Resort Camp, there will be several checkpoints throughout the race🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️ which expose participants 👭👬👫 on the importance of rainforests🌳🌳

“PEKA 🌱Malaysiais extremely concerned about indiscriminate logging nationwide 🌎 which affects the water 💦💧catchment areas & loss of wildlife 🐅🐆🦓🦍🐘🦏🦒habitats. If we do not start doing something, there might not be any rainforest 🌳🌳 left for our future generations,” she added👩🏽‍💼
