In 2002, the Environmental Management and Research Association of Malaysia (ENSEARCH) set up the Cyber Plant Conservation Project (CPCP) in partnership with Bioversity International. CPCP was funded by the Malaysian IT Council under its Demonstration Application Grants Scheme (DAGS). Since 2004, CPCP has evolved into the Cyber Plant Conservation Network (CPCNet) through an initial grant from SHELL. Recently, CPCNet embarks on the concept of using ICT in environmental conservation through a partnership with Multimedia University (MMU).

CPCNet is a unique rare fruit tree conservation project that aims at conserving rare and endangered fruit trees of the country through participation of private companies, organisations and individuals. By involving the Orang Asli communities living along the forest fringes to help in raising fruit tree seedlings for the project would provide some supplementary income to these communities. Public and corporate companies can contribute in this project by sponsoring fruit trees to be planted in schools, parks and events in relation to their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Impacts:

  • Increase the public awareness and participation especially the youth, in looking after our environment through their direct involvement in taking care of these fruit trees.
  • Make available a collection of traditional knowledge related to these trees for the younger generations.
  • Strengthen the economic values of these fruit trees to the forest fringe communities, through their participation in seedling production.

Our Achievements:

  • Planted over 600 indigenous fruit trees of 35 different species in 30 schools and 10 organizations within Selangor and Kedah.
  • Collected more than 2500 indigenous fruit tree seedlings of 56 different species from five different forest fringe communities in Selangor, Perak and Pahang.
  • Awareness and education on fruit tree conservation and tree care to participating schools and interested organizations.

On-going activities:

  • Developing a mobile phone application that allows users to upload observed information on tree health, flowering and fruiting.
  • Developing a school class project for environmental awareness.
  • Giving talks on the network and tree planting.
