KUCHING: Malaysia's R&B sensation Dayang Nurfaizah wants to get involved in nature and wildlife conservation in her home state of Sarawak.
A conservation and wildlife ambassador under Pulau Banding Foundation and Bukit Merah Orang Utan Island Foundation, Dayang believes she can help out in the state.
“We are discussing where and how I can help in the conservation of Sarawak's nature and wildlife. I don't mind doing something with agencies like Sarawak Tourism Board,” she said at a press conference here yesterday.
She said she was actively involved in promoting awareness on the Belum-Temengor Forest and Belum Rainforest Resort in Pulau Banding, Perak.
“It's close to the Malaysia-Thailand border and there are Orang Asli living in the thick jungles there. Not many know of this and I help out through events they hold, like jungle trekking with schoolchildren,” she said.

“I am prepared to be an ambassador for the orang utans as the rehabilitation centres in Sarawak and Sabah are linked to Bukit Merah.”
She said her new album Sayang @ Cahaya speaks about universal love and it includes love and passion for the environment.
