In a heartwarming display of Corporate Social Responsibility, China Communications Construction (CCC-ECRL), recently embarked on a mission to protect and enrich the habitat of the critically endangered Malayan Tiger.
With a team of 100 dedicated individuals, the ECRL Project initiated a tree planting campaign at the Malayan Tiger Conservation Center (MTCC) a project that signifies their commitment to the conservation of Malaysia’s iconic wildlife.The tree planting endeavor witnessed the successful planting of approximately 100 different types of trees at MTCC. This initiative was conducted in partnership with the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (PERHILITAN) under the banner of the ‘Malayan Tiger Habitat Enrichment Cooperation Programme.’
This program is divided into three phases: the first phase focuses on soil treatment, liming, and fertilization, while the second phase involves planting saplings, shade trees, and fruit trees. The third phase emphasizes the ongoing maintenance, pruning, and fertilization of trees within the MTCC enclosures.
The ultimate goal of this program is to contribute to the long-term conservation efforts of PERHILITAN and MTCC in safeguarding the Malayan Tiger (Panthera tigris jacksoni) population and supporting breeding initiatives for this endangered species.
