KAMPAR: A total of 10,000 indigenous forest trees and fruit species will be planted in the Kinta Nature Park here as an effort to restore biodiversity in the park.

This initiative is carried out by AEON Credit Service (M) Berhad (AEON Credit) towards creating a more sustainable environment for the local community.

The AEON Credit Reforestation Biodiversity Project is in collaboration with the Perak State Park Corporation (PSPC) and FRIM Incorporated Sdn. Bhd. (FRIM).

AEON Credit’s Managing Director, Daisuke Maeda, said that this strategic collaboration signifies a transformative beginning to enhance biodiversity in the park.

He said that these efforts contribute to carbon absorption in addressing climate change issues.

“We are helping to create a low-carbon society while ensuring the preservation of biodiversity for future generations.

“After planting, we will also maintain these trees for 36 months before handing them over to PSPC, where the future plan is to develop the area into an eco-tourism destination,” he said.

Earlier, the tree-naming ceremony was officiated by the Menteri Besar Perak, Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad.

A total of 600 volunteers consisting of government officials from various agencies, university students, and AEON Group employees collaborated to plant 2,000 tree saplings.

This marks the beginning in the conservation area of ​​the park, which was formerly a tin ore mining site and is now home to over 150 bird species.
