Grant from the Edge Foundation for Environmental Education at the Mossy Forests of Cameron Highlands

by Cheam May Choo

We are pleased to inform that we recently received a grant from the Edge Foundation for environmental education at our mossy forests. Besides educating students on the biodiversity and importance of our highland forests, this time around we would include lessons on climate change.

The Edge Education Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Edge Media Group. The foundation’s mission is to foster, develop and promote education of all kinds. Through the Edge KL Rat Race (which is held annually since 2000) funds are raised from corporate Malaysia and given to the various registered charities and NGOs. This year the event was held at Padang Merbok, KL on the 31st of July 2018.

Simple weather measuring instruments will be installed at our mini weather station in Gunung Brinchang. As with our earlier programmes,field trips would consist of a visit to untouched mossy forests followed by a visit to our Biodiversity Centre. where forests are being rehabilitated. Students would participate in tree planting and later brief on climate change, forest conservation and how all these are interrelated.

REACH would like to thank the Edge Education Foundation for supporting our conservation efforts.
