National Park Pahang, Malaysia ğŸ‡²ğŸ‡¾

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has recently travelled to Taman Negara 🌳🌳 (aka National Park 🌳🌳 ) Pahang, Malaysia 🇲🇾 with MITA business networking trip & enjoyed her back to nature 💚 stay 🛌🚿🚽😴💤 at Han Rainforest Resort 🏡🏘🏡

She 👩🏻 had a privilege to meet & enjoyed an inspiring chat 🗣👤 with the founder of the resort🏡🏘🏡, Mr Kenny Ng 👨🏻‍💼(Uncle Kenny) about his nature 💚 💚 passion & resort busines journey

Oppsss…SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has forgot 🤦🏻‍♀️ to have a photo 📸 with Uncle Kenny 👨🏻‍💼 during this trip

He 👨🏻‍💼 has generously shared an article ✍🏻📜wrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to share 👩🏻‍💻📝 it here, inclusion of her favourite ❤️ emojisss & capturesss 📸 in between 😃😁

🤗 ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ 🤗

Taman Negara🌳🌳, situated in the heart ❤️of Pahang, Malaysia 🇲🇾 , is 1️⃣ of the oldest rainforest 🌳🌳 in the world 🗺🌍 at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical 🌍 wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora 🌳🌱🌿🌺 & fauna 🦓🐆🐅🐘 to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect 👍🏻 platform for the development of a hub towards the education of conservation of the ecology surrounding Taman Negara & rainforests in general 🌳🌳

We strongly believe that Taman Negara 🌳🌳 has the potential to be a global 🗺🌍 platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre 😃

My 👨🏻‍💼 humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara 🌳🌳 & the handling of some 1️⃣ million over tourists 👫👭👬 since day 1️⃣, has led me 👨🏻‍💼 to the formation of 2️⃣ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort 🏡🏘🏡 with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists 👬👫👭 a year & 90% of them are from Europe 🇬🇧 🇮🇹 🇩🇪 🌍🗺

It has come to a time, where I 👨🏻‍💼 feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation 👧🏻🧒🏻👦🏻🧑🏻 & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation 💚 of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2️⃣ new 🆕 arms in our corporation to execute the upcoming programs called Eco Adventure Tourism 💚💚

This will be encased with the educational arm named the Eco Educational Tourism, headed by Mr Frank Kee & his team 🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♂️💁🏻‍♀️ & in support 💪🏻 with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team 🙋🏽‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♂️💁🏻‍♀️

Just 1️⃣ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo ğŸŽ‹ğŸŽor specific trees 🌳🌳 by badly eroded areas in the effort to prevent further damage to the riversides 💦💧

This is just an example of what we would provide as a CSR initiative 😀

We shall be working closely with the Sultan Ahmad Environmental foundation 💚 in its efforts, participate & uphold its values 😊

Alas, with our planning & preparation, we now realise that we face a huge stumbling block 😥😓 We do not a permanent site to conduct our activities in a conducive & safe manner 😌

Also, current rules & regulations by the government sectors should be looked at & revised to enable operators like us 👭👫👬 to introduce & execute the mutually beneficial conservational education programs 💚💚

In the extended period, the efforts will benefit not just the environment 💚🌳💚 but also creating employment opportunity to the locals within its surroundings 👭👬👫

I👨🏻‍💼now urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us 🙏🏻🤝👏🏻🙌🏻

Other Asian countries are already promoting their countrys’ tagline, for example;-

  • Thailand 🇹🇭 ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia 🇮🇩 ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines 🇵🇭 ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia 🇲🇾 ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia 🇲🇾 have also set their vision 💭 on Eco Tourism 💚 with its plans & implementation of its program from 2025 & continued focusing till 2050

Han Travel Sdn Bhd, is now at the final phases of the planning & is almost ready to launch our initial program on Eco & Adventure Tourism 💚💚 The launch pad & operations will be at the Han Rainforest Resort, Kuala Tahan 🏡🏘🏡

We hope our efforts will promote & drive the state of Pahang to be model state & also the centre of Ecological 💚 Awareness & the centre for the Education on Rainforest Preservation 🌳🌳

Once again, I 👨🏻‍💼 believe that our vision is in line with the Pahang State government’s. Developing a fully functioning centre where the education of the ecology 💚 can spread to all walks of life through an experiential process where participants 👫👭👬 can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology 💚around us & the threats to its and our existence 😃😁

Thank you 🙏🏻

Not only Borneo‼️ Yes ✅, in fact Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 with all  🔟 hornbill species comparatively 😃

This volunteer participation has recalled her memory of 1️⃣st hornbill feeding @ Pangkor Island early this year

 

BTFC 🌳🌳 aka Northern Peninsular Malaysia🇲🇾’s Natural Jewels ğŸ’Ž, the only remaining contiguous block to tropical rainforests 🌳🌳 which linking to Southern Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. Bang Lang National Park & Hala Bala Wildlife Sanctuary, also part of the Titiwangsa Range 💚

IMG_7369.JPG

Currently, only BTFC 🌳🌳 & the Greater Ulu Muda Forest Complex 🌳🌳 are on par for the hornbill diversity in Malaysia 🇲🇾, then together with the Southern Thailand 🇹🇭, all made up for the Hornbill Triangle (HoT)🔺

Hornbills get its name from its horn-like projection i.e. a casque on their beaks (Hmm…Not all hornbill species have them though) 😊

Hornbills are well known as the farmers 👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾 of the rainforests 🌳🌳

Ohh…Why❓⁉️

Hornbills fly long distances looking for fruitsğŸŽğŸÂ & swallow fruitsğŸŽğŸin whole. Hmm…Some fruits ğŸŽğŸÂ are with big seeds. As they spit out countless seeds, some seeds find a place to grow & become new 🆕 trees 🌳🌳

However, really dissappointed & sad 😧😔 that some of the hornbill species are experiencing critically endangered & vulnerable. In this connection, if lesser ⬇️ hornbills, many rainforest trees 🌳🌳 that depend on them to spread their seeds may disappear from the rainforest 🌳🌳eventually

Why❓⁉️ Why❓⁉️Why❓⁉️

Some of the main reasons are destruction/ loss of the hornbills’ habitats & degradation due to deforestation (Photo 📸 below captured from BRAINS Summit 2018), fragmentation of rainforests 🌳🌳, illegal logging (Photo 📸 below captured by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during her volunteer trip), poaching & hunting, conversion to agriculture e.g. oil palm plantations, over-development etc. 😧😔

IMG_8151.jpg

IMG_8161.JPG

As the rainforests 🌳🌳disappear, so does indigenous peoples’👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽culture too 😧😔 as their living style very much depended on the rainforests 🌳🌳 for medicine, shelter, food, other necessities etc. They are not known to take more than what they need as this would be seen as a transgression of the rainforest 🌳🌳 & would bring curses to their people. So, the destruction of their prime resource is resulting in the destruction of their traditional ways of life 😧😔

IMG_7363.JPG

You may not aware that BTFC 🌳🌳consists of 2️⃣ big parts,

  1. Temengor Forest Reserve ~ the southern part of BTFC is largely a production forest 🌳🌳
  2. Royal Belum State Park ~ the northern part, a protected area🌳🌳

MNS has been working hard for years to get the whole BTFC a protected area 🌳🌳 with its ecotourism 💚 efforts 👍🏻🙌🏻💪🏻 Hope they will achieve success very soon

“MY forest 🌳 , MY wildlife, MY responsibility”

Curious 🤔 about what SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has participated & learnt during her 4️⃣D3️⃣N volunteering with MNS❓⁉️

MNS Hornbill FestivalğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ

She has captured an interview clipÂ ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥Â with Mr Balu, the Head of Conservation with MNS ~ “Hornbill Conservation Effort by MNS

MY forest is a high⬆️-impact partnership, as it looks at Malaysia🇲🇾’s natural 💚 heritage ~ rainforests 🌳🌳 & how non-state actors ~ non-governmental organisations, civil societies, local communities, the private sector & the public – can inform & change policies towards better rainforest governance.  Under this 5️⃣-year project (2017-2021), MNS is tasked with building the capacity of non-state actors from all around Malaysia 🇲🇾 to engage more effectively with the government in protecting Malaysia🇲🇾’s rainforests 🌳🌳

 

She had great interactions with the orang asli kids 👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽 & adults🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽about nature awareness, artğŸŽ¨ğŸ–activities, sumpit, balloonsğŸŽˆğŸŽˆ, survey questionnaires❓❓etc. by using simple Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Melayu 👌🏻✌🏻👍🏻

She got inspired by the orang asli hornbill guardians’ passion 💗 towards hornbills conservation 👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 Truly motivated with the positivity 🙏🏻👆🏻Really wish local communities here with skills gained from ecotourism efforts by MNS to improving their overall living lifestyle & being happy self sufficient 👍🏻💪🏻🙌🏻

IMG_7789.jpg

A briefing by Mr Yeap & the orang asli hornbill guardians to all volunteers about the hornbills counting

Then, she👩🏻has learnt & experienced the use of blowgun aka sumpit 😀 Obviously she failed miserably, perhaps a good reason to volunteer again next Aug/ Sept, Ha…Ha…

Also the chillies 🌶🌶 here with different grades

Tips 📌💡learnt for sharing: If you are gonna cook dishes today with chillies 🌶🌶 , pick the total red ❤️ one. If you wish to cook with chillies 🌶🌶 in dishes within a week or slightly longer, pick the chillies with some greens 💚 ya
