Let us not forget wild plants

Focal Area 7


Sabah Forestry Department has entrusted BORA to develop and curate Sabah Ficus Germplasm Center at Tabin Wildlife Reserve. This facility contains about 80 species of native wild fig (Ficus) species, maintained as living plants, and all able to produce materials for planting elsewhere. BORA and other NGOs are constantly seeking and collecting seeds and cuttings of other native Ficus species, to add to the collection. Seedlings, cuttings, marcots and bud-grafts of selected species are produced to help restore habitat for orangutans and other wildlife species in Forest Reserves and in oil palm plantations.
