MARINE

Malaysia is essentially a maritime country. Spanning more than 19 degrees of longitude, with more than 4,600 kilometers of coastline and bordering four major large bodies of water (Straits of Malacca, South China Sea, Sulu Sea and Sulawesi Sea).

OUR GOALS
30% of Malaysian Seas and Coasts are Conserved
We advocate for Malaysia’s commitment to conserve 30% of Malaysia’s seas and coasts, for the benefit of nature, livelihoods, businesses and future generations.

All Coastal Fisheries and Aquaculture are Sustainably Managed
We facilitate efforts to improve Malaysia’s fisheries, aquaculture, and consumption of food for long-term food security.

Priority Species Safeguarded and Overexploitation Reduced
We influence policy to strengthen legislation and enforcement capacity, and facilitate ground patrols with local communities, NGOs, private sectors and enforcement agencies.
SUCCESS STORY: EXPANDING SABAH'S PROTECTED AREAS

The gazettement of TMP on 19 May 2016 was a significant milestone for marine protection in Malaysia – as the largest multi-use park in the country, various stakeholder groups are involved in protecting its marine and coastal ecosystems, and managing the rich resources contained within it.








SUCCESS STORY: PROTECTING ENDANGERED MARINE SPECIES

Four of the world’s seven species of marine turtles can be found in Malaysian waters.Sadly, all species – hawksbill, green, leatherback, olive ridley – are listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, ranging from vulnerable to critically endangered.








SUCCESS STORY: SUSTAINING MALAYSIA'S FISHERIES FROM BOAT...

Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) is an unique solution as it involves multiple stakeholders – fishers, coastal communities, industrial fishers, private sectors, researchers, governmental, and non-governmental bodies – to work together to improve fishing activities, better manage marine resources, increase protection of the environment, ensure financial viability, and promote efforts locally and internationally.

COMMUNICATING FOR A CHANGE

The #SederhanaJe online campaign was organised for one month with the aim to promote food consumption in moderation and prevent food waste during Ramadan and Hari Raya Aidilfitri.









SEA TURTLES

These gentle reptiles of the sea swim great distances and come on land only to nest on Malaysian beaches. They are known for their longevity among local cultures. Sadly, the number of marine turtles in most places has plummeted and some populations are on the brink of extinction. In the 1950s, some 10,000 leatherback turtle nests were recorded at Rantau Abang, Terengganu. There have been no recorded nestings of leatherbacks since 2011. We cannot afford to let our hawksbill, olive ridley and green turtles suffer the same fate.
