Gamuda Parks is the umbrella programme that encompasses biodiversity and nature conservation and preservation. It also helps mitigate human-animal conflict while protecting endangered wildlife species. Our Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands is an example of a natural sanctuary that raises public awareness about the importance of wetlands, which are the habitats to an estimated 90% of living species in the world.
Planting 1 million trees and saplings by 2023
Trees are a vital part of our environment, not only in providing oxygen but also improving air quality and supporting wildlife. For this reason and for our shared future, we believe in working towards reducing our carbon footprint across the value chain with solutions for carbon neutrality. We aim to plant 1 million trees and saplings by 2023 across our townships and the 1,600-acre Urban Green Reserve.
Forest Park and Gamuda Parks Wetlands Arboretum
These are recreational and conservation zones that preserve the biodiversity of our past and provide valuable information about our future, and the Forest Park and Gamuda Parks Wetlands Arboretum were created with this in mind. Here, we regenerate flora and fauna species, and address the issue of climate change and carbon storage value.
By creating spaces where residents and nature can co-exist and live harmoniously in the same habitat, better homes and habitats are brought to life.
Green ecosystem management refers to green areas of flora and fauna that help cool the environment.
Blue ecosystem management is the sustainability of rivers, lakes and other water-based environmental control measures that ensure effective water management and a healthier aquatic ecosystem.
Brown ecosystem management compliments Green and Blue ecosystems and refers to the hardscape comprising materials, natural resources and man-made materials, including soil, paths and outdoor structures, promoting healthy lifestyles.
Gamuda Parks Rangers
Our Gamuda Parks Ranger programme is an educational programme that encourages children to foster a positive connection with the environment through fun opportunities to experience nature first hand, so they may be more inclined to take positive actions to conserve and protect it.
Community farms are a great resource for sustainable food. Several of our developments feature these community farms for residents, including the Kundang Estates’ Community Farm and HAVVA’s Farm By The Quay at Quayside Mall, bringing innovative urban farming to the people, allowing them to enjoy fresh produce while learning more about sustainable farming.

At Gamuda Parks, our expert advisors guide us into being better custodians of the land. Dr. Saw Leng Guan, one of our expert botanists, was a former Director of the Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) with over 35 years of experience in Malaysian taxonomy, herbarium, botanical forestry, and conservation of flora and the ecosystem.
Dato’ Paduka Ir. (Dr.) Hj Keizrul Bin Abdullah is another key figure at Gamuda Parks. He is the Chairperson of the Council of Wetlands International Malaysia, and has been involved in the field of water resource engineering for the past 37 years.
