The Malua BioBank was created in an innovative public-private partnership with the Sabah State Government as an investment in the rehabilitation and protection of the Malua Forest Reserve.
In order to ensure reliable, long-term forest stewardship, the Sabah Government has committed to halt logging in the Malua Forest for a period of at least 50 years.
During this time, the Malua BioBank Conservation Management Plan will be implemented in order to improve wildlife habitat and promote ecosystem service functions, such as carbon sequestration and storage in Malua's growing forest.
The Malua Trust, an endowment managed by HSBC Trustees, will oversee and finance the conservation management of the Malua Forest into the future.
