The 21st Century is witness to increased pressures on the Earth’s natural resources and is calling out for a new approach which balances the needs of people and environment based on the principles of sustainability.
Animal Projects & Environmental Education Sdn. Bhd. (APE Malaysia) is a Social Enterprise that focuses on conservation as a means to enable the wider change towards a sustainable future. Flagship Malaysian species such as orangutans, pygmy elephants, sun bears and marine turtles are used to showcase the complex interrelationships between humans and the environment, allowing everyday people to connect to both the problems and the solutions.
APE Malaysia participates in on-going conservation projects with willing partners who share the same ethos and who are working towards common conservation outcomes. People and organizations can become involved in these projects either through APE’s volunteering program, education program or set up Corporate Responsibility projects. Whether used singly or combined, these methods are used in creative and unique ways to create distinct and dynamic programmes that highlight APE’s model of addressing environment + economics + people in everything it does.
There are 2 project sites at which APE currently delivers this approach. Each site has existing conservation or animal welfare programmes that are run by trustworthy partners, Government departments and/or NGOs. APE’s participation and support are driven by the needs of the individual site and designed to be sustainable.
