Nurturing environmental stewardship through Gamuda Parks’ Wetlands Festival 2024

In celebration of World Wetlands Day, Gamuda Parks organised the Wetlands Festival 2024 at its Wetlands Arboretum Centre in Gamuda Cove. Gamuda Parks is a sustainable landscaping initiative by Gamuda Land.

The Wetlands Festival highlighted the importance of environmental education and eco-tourism, alongside strategic collaborations with educational institutions and partners who share the same interest in conducting research that can make a meaningful impact. Wetlands are vital ecosystems known for their rich biodiversity and essential roles in food security, carbon storage, and water filtration. Recognising their importance, Gamuda Land through Gamuda Parks, transformed a 90-acre reserved land in Gamuda Cove, near Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands into a Wetlands Arboretum—a living tree museum.

“Arboretums serve several important functions, combining educational, research, and recreational purposes. Besides maintaining living collections of trees, some of which may be rare, endangered, or historically significant, the Wetlands Arboretum is also a living laboratory for the study of plant biology, ecology, and horticulture,” explained Khariza Abd Khalid, Executive Director, Gamuda Land to PropertyGuru Malaysia.
