Malaysia ranks as one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world, with at least 20% of the world’s known plant and animal species. Malaysia, along with southeast Asian nations, are among the major producers of timber and wood products, but are also one of the top countries with the biggest forest shrinkage. Malaysian territory is approximately two thirds forest. However, over the past 20 years, 7.7 million hectares of tree cover has been lost, equivalent to a 26% decrease. Malaysia’s forests have been devastated by major threats such as plantation expansion and illegal logging activities, with over 60% of forests cleared in the Malaysian peninsula.

Protecting the environment is vital to the growth and success of humans and animals alike, spurring World Expeditions Schools commitment to conservation projects to assist within this region. Students participating in this program will engage in various projects that introduce students to sustainability, conservation, and enable positive growth towards the preservation of Malaysian forests.

Learning outcomes for students

World Expeditions Schools journeys are designed to encourage positive personal development and the learning of life skills, while leaving the communities and environments we travel to, in a better condition than when we arrived.
The programs are designed to:
• build strong friendships and bonds with their peers, their teachers, and the local people they meet.
• increase the confidence to engage with new people, and collaboratively make informed decisions.
• discover the benefits of working cooperatively together as a cohesive team, to achieve a common objective.
• Increase the ability to face, and cope with, mental and physical challenges and therefore increase resilience.
• give students a chance to appreciate and care for the natural world. The environments we travel through are beautiful and often pristine, invariably the students will gain a deeper appreciation and understanding about how their individual actions impact on the environment.
• Learn personal skills i.e., time management, personal hygiene, responsibility for personal gear, patience, tolerance, and public speaking.
We help encourage students to learn what it means to be a true global citizen.
