The talk has attracted more than 100 staff and residents to attend, and they have reflected that the talk was indeed informative, allowing them to better understand the surrounding natural ecological environment and they have benefitted a lot from it.
Despite the rapid growth and mega scale development which inviting various reactions from local and overseas, Forest City remains confident in its planning. Starting with Staff and Residents Go Green Project to sponsoring scientific research institution to work on environmental research， organising environmental talk and forum, Forest City is putting effort in exploring the harmonious coexistence between man and nature.
Forest City recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) on 29 October 2019. Forest City Management believes that efforts to conserve the environment are important and should be carried out with the help of experts in this field.
Since 2015, Forest City has focused its efforts on conserving seagrasses located on the Tanjung Kupang Meadow. This conservation effort is in collaboration with a group of scientists from Universiti Putra Malaysia who are also seagrass experts. After various initiatives, the Tanjung Kupang Meadow has shown positive growth, recovery and back to its original form.
Besides that, recognizing Forest City development areas surrounded by flora such as mangrove swamps that are home to many species of fauna, Forest City aims to expand and strengthen conservation efforts that encompass the area.
Various environmental conservation initiatives have been planned and will be carried out by Forest City as part of CSR activities, including academic seminars on the importance of marine ecosystems, species diversity and to develop a green museum that will showcase marine life specimens around Tanjung Kupang and Sungai Pulai.
