One of Boustead Plantations Berhad’s policies on land use development and management is that unsuitable land and sensitive areas are maintained under natural cover. Some areas are left for natural forest regeneration while others are rehabilitated with forest species to reduce land degradation.
Portions of our natural landscapes within our estates which were previously left unplanted continue to be preserved, despite the possibility to clean-plant the area. We are very fortunate as our estates are home to special conservation sites, such as the hot springs in our Segaria Estate in Sabah.
Segaria Hot Springs is an area thriving with biodiversity, becoming a natural habitat for a wide variety of species including monkeys and birds. Those exploring the area can also expect to see trees of various class including Binuang and Keruing. In addition to that, BPB has also taken the initiative to plant more than 180 Mahogany tree in 1996 at the vicinity of Segaria Hot Springs.
We don’t keep the best things to ourselves. Whether one wants to take a dip in the springs or simply taking a time off, the area is open for public who wants to appreciate nature’s beauty. Amenities such as gazebos and platforms are provided, just like any other recreational parks in Malaysia.
We make it a priority to preserve natural phenomenon occurring on any of our land and its surrounding vicinity. Segaria Hot Springs is one of our success stories in preserving and maintaining high conservation values area in our plantation.
As with our mission towards sustainable operations, preservation of special conservation sites is a responsibility entrusted to us, in line with the principles of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).
