KINABATANGAN: Oil palm planters in Sabah, the country’s second largest cultivator, have not ignored their responsibilities in wildlife and forest conservation, says Primary Industries Minister Teresa Kok Suh Sim.

The minister said her visit to the state found that many people are unaware of the conservation efforts by oil palm planters here, including anti-palm campaigners from other countries.

“This is good news (the conversation efforts), but many are unaware that our palm industry has taken many steps towards forest conservation.

“This information will help my ministry fight for Malaysia’s palm industry, especially in revealing these efforts to the leaders of other countries, including those in Europe,” she said after officiating at the launch of the state’s Plant a Million Trees programme at the Pin Supu Forest Reserve here yesterday. — Bernama
