Establish in 2010, Pertubuhan Pelindung Khazanah Alam Malaysia (better known as PEKA Malaysia) was formed with the vision to save the oldest rainforest with all its biodiversity from extinction, as part of the total living environment for people. Its mission is to be the force in ensuring the protection and conservation of the natural environment. PEKA Malaysia is a non-paying volunteer environmental NGO and we aspire to be the voice of the natural environment, defend its rights as well as protect, conserve and preserve it for the future of all living species. One of our main aims is to raise awareness of the present plight of the natural environment and to encourage creation of a sustainable future in line with our motto “SEE NATURE, SEE LIFE”.
Founded by Puan Sri To’ Puan Datuk Shariffa Sabrina for her love of nature and belief in preserving the natural heritage, PEKA has strictly been run by volunteers since its inception. PEKA Malaysia has been the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions on both the national and international level. On 26th September 2012, EU-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry named PEKA Malaysia as the winner of Europa Sustainability Award 2012 in recognition of our commitment to meet high standards of excellence in our Environment Programme. We are honoured to be listed among the Top 30 Green Catalysts 2014 in Malaysia for Green Tech Awards. Furthermore, in 2016, PEKA Malaysia was also nominated as the Eco-Champion of the Year for Pangkor Dialogue Awards 2016.
