We take a firm initiative to protect and preserve the remaining beautiful gem in Usukan Island, Kota Belud. This place will be an example for many people around the world, proven we must and need to work with Nature and put Nature first in many ways. We welcome you to join our mission and be part of our journey.
This project is so valuable to everyone because we all know "When the last tree was cut, the last fish was caught, and the last river was polluted; when the climate became unpredictable, and the air became unsafe to breathe, only then did people realize that they couldn't eat money." And we don’t want this to happen to our coming generation. We can’t do it alone and we need you to be part of this development.
