Concluding his speech, Wong expressed SARAWAK FORESTRY’s hope that more organisations would render support to the corporation’s conservation works in time to come.

Matang Wildlife Centre cares for endangered mammals, birds and reptiles species but it is the Centre’s orangutan rehabilitation programme that has caught the attention of people the world over. SARAWAK FORESTRY’s rehabilitation works were initially concentrated only at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre at Semenggoh Nature Reserve. However, starting 1998, new orangutan inmates have been admitted to Matang Wildlife Centre in view of the increasing orangutan population being rehabilitated at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre.
