Southeast Asia is one of the world’s most important and biodiverse regions, with high levels of endemism. However, the biodiversity in the region is also under serious threats and these include deforestation and poaching, resulting in the highest concentration of species on the edge of extinction compared to any region in the world.

Recognising the urgent need for sustainable conservation initiatives, Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) has supported a multitude of projects across the region. This was achieved through funding support, capacity building as well as conservation planning workshops that bring together global experts engaged in tackling biodiversity loss.
