ecoCare Environmental Education Centre

PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad (PCG) has been actively raising awareness on mangrove conservation through the ecoCare programme since 2005. Since its establishment, more than 7,000 mangroves seedlings have been planted along degraded patches thereby rehabilitating an area of 11,000 square meters along the Kertih River.

An Environmental Education Centre (EEC) was launched in 2013 in Kertih, Terengganu, Malaysia. Established in collaboration with the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), this centre is the first-of-its-kind in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia which educates the public on mangrove protection and conservation.

The unique appeal of EEC rests in its capacity to cater to the local community, tourists and students as an integrated environmental education avenue that showcases the distinctive coastal terrain as well as biodiversity of Kertih River.
