For Malaysia’s natural heritage and rich biological diversity to be effectively protected, managed and conserved for the benefit and appreciation of all Malaysians.

To promote the conservation of Malaysia’s natural heritage.

The genesis of our society predates the independence of Malaysia. A group of British expatriates deeply interested in our country’s lush natural heritage decided that the abundant collection of field notes and natural history records, which they had accumulated, was vital to the country’s heritage and should be published. In 1940, with the publication of the Malayan Nature Journal Volume 1, the Malaysian Nature Society was born.

Evolving from a core of society volunteers, MNS’ Kuala Lumpur-based headquarters now has a team of 40 dedicated staff members who see to the day-to-day running of the society’s administration and activities.

We have pioneered conservation in Malaysia for the last seven decades, making a difference through habitat conservation and environmental education. Through the joint efforts of our members, partners and supporters, MNS has become a strong voice for the protection of Malaysia’s natural heritage. We will continue presenting our stand by promoting and ensuring responsible environmental stewardship in this country.

MNS’ Conservation Initiatives aim to secure environmentally sensitive areas, key habitats and species in Malaysia. The initiative will work toward securing an integrated, comprehensive and representative Protected Area system in Malaysia.

Make a difference today by signing up as a member of MNS and be part of a national and global movement! Add voice to the thousands calling for conservation and environmental integrity in Malaysia.

Environmental Education
Our message of environmental conservation should not be restricted to our members only. This is why we established the Education initiatives to inculcate the love of nature in students and empower future generations to act in the protection of our natural legacy.
