We’re able to provide Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) solutions to conservation and education challenges faced by corporations, who want their CSR projects identified, managed, monitored and evaluated. APE matches the organization’s CSR goals to the needs of the sites and stakeholders. This ensures that their contributions are channeled to conservation projects at existing and new projects sites in a sustainable way, with maximum effectiveness for all.
The relationships we have established at various sites through the commitment of our on-going projects allow APE the flexibility and knowledge to initiate new strategies for corporations and local partners in developing resourceful CSR programmes.
Discuss your corporate philosophy, as well as the aims of your team & corporation with us, and we will work with you towards developing a suitable programme embedded within our project sites. Here are a few projects that we have organized with local and international organizations:
APE Malaysia assists companies or groups by planting trees on their behalf in the Lower Kinabatangan region in Sabah as part of their CSR or to offset their carbon footprint. This encourages groups to participate indirectly in Bornean wildlife conservation.
CREATE is a reforestation project funded by Kansas City Zoo. The project currently employs three locals who form our tree-planting squad. They’re responsible for planting trees and providing maintenance to secure a forest passageway. The project is also supported by a few other zoos under The Association of Zoos & Aquarium (AZA), USA.
APE Malaysia worked together with the Langur Project Penang to install the first urban habitat fire hose bridge in Malaysia for dusky langurs and other wildlife friends who live and eat on both sides of a very busy road. The bridge reduced the risk of roadkill incidents, making the area a safer place for both humans and wildlife.
Hammock Amok is a wildlife welfare project focused on creating enrichment for rehabilitation or rescue centres. Through our partnership with AirAsia Foundation, we’ve been able to help centres in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos and Malaysia. Other than logistical support, this project also includes AirAsia staff working together to make enrichment items for various animals.
MEEM was written and developed by APE Malaysia (previously known as WOX) in partnership with WWF-Malaysia. This learning module was created to increase understanding of marine conservation in Malaysia and was used by teachers and students in Semporna, Sabah. We hope that every person who reads this book will enjoy being an active participant in conserving not only the marine world, but also our entire environment.
