SUMMARY
‘KEEP PLANTING TREES’ is a Malaysian Initiative to curb Global Warming and conserve Biodiversity. This project is as a result of the UNEP 2006 TUNZA International Children’s Conference on the Environment, with a theme, ‘Save A Tree, Save Our Lungs’. Children from Malaysia and all over the world planted 70 trees. Rimba Tunza Wetlands Putrajaya was created and dedicated to children with a message to ‘Keep Planting Trees’. In January 2007, UNEP launched ‘Plant for the Planet: One Billion Tree Campaign. YAWA pledged to plant 10,000 trees in 2007 and to plant 5,000,000 trees by 5 years. But working in partnership, we may even plant more than this. God-willing! The reality is here! We have stolen so much from our children – global warming is the evidence! ‘Keep Planting Trees’, is the only way we give back to them! The support from global and local governing and decision-making bodies are called for! It is our responsibility to take action now! Working in partnership with Forestry Peninsular Malaysia, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Forest Research Institute Malaysia and Putrajaya Holdings will be the Malaysian initiative to start to curb global warming. Forests’ and ‘My Tree Day’. Every tree planted will fall into themes, ‘Love Mangrove, Love Life’, ‘Forests in the Cities’, ‘Waste no Land-Build New These concepts hope to instill a strong sense of ownership in children, young people, adults and organisations that care for a better world for the future generations. Trees are life and it supports our lives. The mission of ‘Keep Planting Trees’, is, that all of the trees planted with major partners will be dedicated to children, people young and old, staff members of corporate and organisations. We also plant trees individually. In return, a small donation of RM2 for the care of each planted tree, by each person, over a period of time, will make a huge difference. This is a life-long campaign and can be replicated by any organisation, locally and globally to adopt the concept as partners. Lets ‘Keep Planting Trees’… for the sake of Mankind.

YAYASAN ANAK WARISAN ALAM KEEP PLANTING TREES A Malaysian Initiative to Curb Global Warming, to Conserve Biodiversity and to Plant for the Planet in the UNEP One Billion Tree Campaign EXPLORING JOHORE RAMSAR WETLAND In Partnership with Johor Forestry Department Universiti Putra Malaysia What is Ramsar Wetland? The Convention on Wetlands, signed in Ramsar, Iran, in 1971 is an intergovernmental treaty that provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources towards achieving sustainable development for the world. The Ramsar Convention has adopted the following broad definition of ‘wetland’:Areas of marsh, peat land of water, whether natural or artificial, permanent or temporary with water that is static or flowing, fresh brackish or salt, including areas of marine water the depth of which at low tide does not exceed six metres. Under this definition, wetlands account for a wide variety of habitat types including rivers, lake, shallow marine/coastal waters, inland wetlands and human-made wetlands. Wetlands can be found all over the world, from the Polar Regions to the tropics and they are deteriorating rapidly and are the most threatened ecosystems of our planet. Wetlands provide services of great value to society. They control floods, protect coastal zones and they host a great diversity of flora and fauna. Action to preserve wetlands is necessary – the sooner the better!

Keep Planting Trees Initiative 14

There are currently five Ramsar sites in Malaysia:1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Tasek Bera, Pahang Tanjung Piai State Park, Johore Pulau Kukup State Park, Johore Sungai Pulai Wetland, Johore Kuching Wetlands National Park

Our Objectives 1. To increase awareness and knowledge of the importance of wetlands to our eco-system in the younger generation. 2. To appreciate, love and acknowledge the significance of our wetlands existence as our natural heritage. 3. To study the flora and fauna of the local wetlands. 4. To start environmental education/activities for children and youth of the neighbouring wetlands by initiating the Keep Planting Trees campaign. 5. To invite local schools, colleges and universities to participate in our Keep Planting Trees campaign. 6. To work with NGOs such as Wetlands International to assist in the technical aspect of the wetlands. Project Scope Proposed Activities As a result of the UNEP Tunza ICCE in 2006, YAWA is committed to follow up studies to protect more areas where plants and forests are endangered. YAWA is organising a trip to Johore to explore the wonders of the Ramsar wetlands, located around the areas of Tanjung Piai, Pulau Kukup and Sungai Pulai. YAWA is keen to work in partnership with the Johor State Forestry Department in our project, ‘Keep Planting Trees’. We would also like to participate with Johor Forestry Dept on its celebration of the World Forestry Day, this June, in particular to plant Mangroves. Date: 6th, 7th & 8th June, 2007 Expected Packs: 40 YAWA eco-kids/eco-youth and 5 accompanying adults volunteer Pledge – To plant 2000 mangrove trees

Appendix 5. Methods on Tree Planting To Plant a tree (Adopted from UNEP Plant One Billion Tree Campaign)
1.

Dig a hole at least twice the width of the root ball to allow the roots to spread out. Remove the tree from its container, carefully cut off broken roots, and slightly loosen the root ball. Place the tree in the planting hole. Always lift the tree by the root ball and never by the trunk. Spread periphery roots outwards. Avoid planting the tree too deep. Make sure that the soil line of the young tree is higher than the surface of the surrounding hole. Shovel some soil into the planting hole. Check the planting depth and adjust if needed. Confirm that the tree is straight. Fill the hole gently but firmly. Pat the soil around the base of the root ball.

2.

3.

4. It is not recommended to apply fertilizer at the time of planting. Water the seedling thoroughly with a slow stream of water to settle the soil. Do not stake the tree. The sooner the tree can stand alone, the sooner it will become strong. 5. Provide follow up care. Protect the tree from pests and diseases by removing plants nearby which are likely to affect it. Remove weeds as they will compete with tree roots for moisture and nutrients. Protect the tree from destruction by livestock. 6. If suitable, space trees well to avoid competition for air and soil nutrients, yellowing of leaves. Always maintain good air circulation in the tree by pruning to avoid pests and other diseases.

Appendix 6. Conclusive Message Whatever action we take today will have a big impact on the future, however small the action is. The point is, such action can only have a big impact if we can get the public at large, from all walks of life, from children in the preschool to the Ministers, to be humble and caring about the environment. This project, Keep Planting Trees, calls for everyone to take part in it. A continuous effort to keep planting trees is a small effort but it may help us save planet Earth from experiencing dramatic changes, from the climate change to extinction of biodiversity that is so rich in the rainforest, to running out of the earth’s natural resources such as the rainforest and fossil fuels. Many people are still not aware that all these things are already happening all over the globe. Keep Planting Trees project is a public awareness campaign at local and global level. There will be many forests disappearing under the name of development. As ordinary people, we have very little power to stop any decisions already approved by the authorities. However, with this project, Keep Planting Trees, we can create an impact through joint forces to build a strong and powerful public awareness campaign that can grow and spread out all over the world. The reality is here! Global Warming is a serious environmental issue that is looming over us! Together, we can do something positive to help reduce rising temperature due to many reasons, especially from massive tree cutting globally to rapid carbon emission to the atmosphere… just a few reasons to mention! So, lets Keep Planting Trees as a commitment close to our hearts for us all to live in harmony with the environment, for the sake of mankind.
