Malaysian Nature Society

The Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) is Malaysia’s largest and oldest non-government environmental organisation. The genesis of our society predates our country’s independence- a group of British expatriates deeply interested in our country’s lush natural heritage decided that the abundant collection of field notes and natural history records which they had accumulated was vital to the country’s heritage and should be published. In 1940, with the publication of the Malayan Nature Journal Volume 1, the Malaysian Nature Society was born.

Today, MNS is the largest membership-based organisation in Malaysia with over 4000 members and 13 branches spread across the country. Evolving from a core group of society volunteers, MNS’ Kuala Lumpur-based headquarters has now a team of 30 dedicated full time staff who see to the day-to-day running of the society’s administration and activities.

We have pioneered conservation in Malaysia for the last seven decades, making a difference through habitat conservation and environmental education. Through the joint efforts of our members, partners and supporters, MNS has become a strong voice for the protection of our country’s natural heritage. We will continue presenting our stand by promoting and ensuring responsible environmental stewardship in this country.
