Saving The Heart of Borneo Through Global Park Defense

Global Conservation protects endangered UNESCO World Heritage and national parks in developing countries through deployment of Global Park Defense systems against wildlife poaching, illegal logging and land clearing. 

LDF supports their work related to the long-term protection and wildlife and biodiversity conservation of the proposed DaMaI UNESCO World Heritage Park in Sabah, Borneo Malaysia. Ultimately the project will lead to the establishment of a 600,000 ha World Heritage Park, to include enhanced wildlife protection throughout.

DaMaI’s unique and rich biodiversity includes the Bornean orangutan, Sunda clouded leopard and other large cats, Borneo pygmy elephant and all eight species of Bornean hornbills, species which are highly threatened and in other areas largely absent outside of DaMaI. 

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
