Sabah’s Biodiversity Experiment, In the Heart of Borneo
Malua is the home of the South East Asia’s premier rainforest research project known as the Sabah Biodiversity Experiment, which is a long-term study aiming to understand the relationship between tree species diversity and the functioning of rainforest during restoration following selective logging.
The Heart of Borneo Initiative is a tri-lateral agreement between the three governments (Malaysia, Brunei & Indonesia) of Borneo to support conservation and sustainable development across 220,000km2 of contiguous rainforest. Malua is an innovative example of a HoB green economy initiative that seeks to make the forests more valuable standing than cut down. Malua BioBank is featured in the WWF's HoB Investing in Nature for a Green Economy report.
