R.E.A.C.H is a community based organisation formed in 2001 by a group of Cameron Highlands residents alarmed by the rapidly deteriorating environment especially the declining forests and water quality. R.E.A.C.H. aims to preserve, restore and maintain Cameron Highlands as an environmentally sustainable agriculture and hill resort within a permanent nature reserve. We strive to maintain a balance between environmental protection and development and to safeguard water catchment areas as a vital resource for the highlands and lowlands. It is now run by a group of volunteers with funds from membership, donations, small grants, reforestation activities and sales of souvenirs.

PUTRAJAYA, 4 Februari – Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) dengan kerjasama Persatuan Kesedaran Alam Sekitar Cameron Highlands (REACH) bercadang mengadakan program memupuk integriti dan mencegah rasuah bagi memulih dan menyelamatkan pusat peranginan terkenal itu.
