Our Upcoming Mega Project

The Borneo Elephant Wildlife Sanctuary (BEWS)


In recent years, there have been reports on human-elephant conflict especially in areas
where oil palm plantations exist on the boundaries of permanent forest reserves. This is
currently most evident in Sabah, where the Bornean pygmy elephant is unique to the Sabah
environment.

Working in collaboration with Sabah Wildlife Department (SWD), we have initiated the concept
of a Borneo Elephant Wildlife Sanctuary (BEWS) to address such conflicts and create a
controlled public access sanctuary to better understand and care for these magnificent
animals.

MPOC has committed to a launch and operational grant of RM5 million to realize the
BEWS. However, the full cost is estimated to be double this amount (nearly RM10
million) and additional funds are been solicited from a variety of sources including
Federal and State funding.

We now provide you a unique opportunity to participate in this BEWS through


MPOWCF. Interested? Please contribute generously and your contribution will be
acknowledged through a number of opportunities. Our target is to raise at least
another RM2 million from Malaysian palm oil industry contributors. Please make
your cheque payable to Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOWCF).
