The theme of the workshop is ‘Enhancing Conservation and MitigatingHuman-wildlife Conflicts’. Its objective is to create a platform for the sharing of experiences by concerned plantation and NGO stakeholders in dealing with human-wildlife conflicts.

Potential mitigation techniques and practices with the least environmental and social impacts will be discussed, as well as how the industry can contribute towards enhancing the current conservation efforts in Sabah. The workshop will also include a site visit to the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre to allow participants to better understand current challenges in Sabah’s wildlife conservation.
