Green Month Campaign

Ready for planting the trees

In conjunction of Malaysian Nature Society Green Month Campaign to be held for one month, beginning on the 31st October 2009 to November 30th 2009, Malaysian Nature Society Langkawi invited hotels to participate in an island and hotel wide coordinated tree planting program.

We proposed that as a gesture hotels could consider planting 30 tree saplings within hotel’s property. The species of trees has been specially chosen to attract birds especially the Hornbills, Bulbuls, Flowerpeckers and the stunningly beautiful Asian Fairy-bluebirds. Hotel guest to participate in this activity as well.

Malaysian Nature Society hope that hotels would invite in house guest to participate in mitigating climate change by voluntary pledging to turn off their room lights for an hour between 7 pm until 8pm daily for the duration of the month of the campaign.
