Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia recently supported wildlife conservation efforts in Sarawak by contributing a Mitsubishi Triton 4×4 pick-up truck to the SARAWAK FORESTRY Corporation. The Triton will be used for wildlife rescue and related conservation works at Matang Wildlife Centre (MWC).
The vehicle was handed over by MMM’s Chief Executive Officer, Tomoyuki Shinnishi to the representative of SARAWAK FORESTRY’s, Chief Executive Officer, Wong Ting Chung in a ceremony held at MWC. The effort is part of Mitsubishi Motors Corporate Social Responsibility programme; aiming to utilize the company’s innovative strength for the greater improvement of a sustainable future.
Matang Wildlife Centre cares for endangered mammals, birds and reptiles species but it is the Centre’s orangutan rehabilitation programme that has caught the attention of people the world over. SARAWAK FORESTRY’s rehabilitation works were initially concentrated only at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre at Semenggoh Nature Reserve. However, starting 1998, new orangutan inmates have been admitted to Matang Wildlife Centre in view of the increasing orangutan population being rehabilitated at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre.
