Protecting the Kinabatangan and Segama River basin. Having almost 60% of remaining mangrove forests in Malaysia, Sabah has a good potential to become a model in mangrove conservation. The mangrove forests in the Lower Kinabatangan and Lower Segama represent 25% of total mangrove forested area in the state. Protecting this area leads to the issues of sustainable land use in the upper stream areas. Designating this mangrove forest as Ramsar site was once suggested in the past, but it has never been materialized. One of the initial tasks of the Sabah Biodiversity Centre (SBC) is to register this area as Ramsar site and to formulate and implement its management and monitoring plan in collaboration with Sabah Forestry Department, Wildlife Department, and other agencies and partners. The capacity of the SBC will be strengthened through this process. For the upper part of the watershed, another international conservation measures is expected to take place in the area encompassing Imbak Canyon and Maliau Basin.
