All I want for Christmas is... to protect one of the world's most biodiverse rainforests!
12 December 2011 – Stuck on what to buy for the office secret Santa this year? How about the chance to save a luscious area of rainforest and a whole host of exotic creatures?!
Last week www.protectmalua.com launched, offering individuals the chance to protect areas of Borneo’s rainforest in Malaysia. For the price of a cappuccino you can protect an area of tropical paradise equivalent to the size of your Dad’s garage. Or how about choosing to protect the size of a large swimming pool for the cost of a swim?
With orangutans, clouded leopards and hairy rhinos roaming free, safe from bordering palm oil plantations, the Malua BioBank is a safe haven for some of the world’s most endangered wildlife.
Over 300 different types of bird soar across the skies, including one very special fellow, Hakim the Hornbill. Along with friends Shafie the Sunbear, Leila the Leopard, Osmawani the Orangutan, Razak the Rhino and Ezrine the Elephant, Hakim is helping promote Malua’s conservation reserve though a dynamic online campaign.
As we approach Christmas, a time of indulgence and excess, why not give a little something back to the planet? Visit www.protectmalua.com to get your hands on some unusual stocking fillers!
And for videos, photos and live animal updates check out the Malua BioBank Facebook page to befriend Hakim and his pals today!
