The Habitat Foundation
About The Habitat Foundation
The Habitat Foundation is a charitable trust based in Penang, Malaysia and the non-profit sister organization of The Habitat Penang Hill. The two organizations complement each other in the overall mission to connect people to this ancient rainforest, promote biodiversity conservation, and support impactful solutions through the programmatic work of the Foundation. The Habitat Foundation is committed to supporting the conservation of biodiversity and safeguarding the living environment upon which we all depend. We are proud to support the government’s nomination of the Penang Hill as a Biosphere Reserve under the UNESCO Man & the Biosphere Programme and are committed to establishing Penang Hill as an important centre for rainforest research and sustainability studies.
The Foundation works closely with communities, scientists, academic institutions, NGOs, government agencies, protected area managers, and businesses. Our aim is to protect the irreplaceable natural heritage of this region and shift our society towards sustainability. See more
