About Us

Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) has been established by the State Government to position Sarawak at the forefront of sustainable forest management and conservation, as outlined in Sarawak Forestry Corporation Ordinance, approved by the State Legislative Assembly in 1995 and launched its operation on June 9, 2003. Over the years, we are committed to responsibly manage and conserve Sarawak’s forests.

Starting 2020, SFC is heading to a new phase where the responsibilities have shifted to take over all functions under National Parks and Nature Reserves Ordinance 1998 and Wild Life Protection Ordinance, 1998. The focus will be: –

  • Constitution of new TPAs
  • Management of TPAs, including national parks, wildlife sanctuaries and nature reserves
  • Protection, enhancement and regeneration of Sarawak’s indigenous flora and fauna, and rehabilitation, both inside and outside protected areas
  • Activities related to biodiversity conservation
  • To create public awareness of conservation and sustainability issues through education, interpretation and training
  • Business development and project planning for conservation-based activities
  • Promotion and regulations of nature-based and community-based eco-tourism

As custodians of Sarawak’s TPAs and wildlife, we have been given a unique opportunity to make a lasting contribution to the environment and the people. We are confident SFC will carry out these responsibilities professionally and successfully, with the cooperation and support of our employees, our stakeholders and the community.

As we work together to achieve our common goals, we will bring the right blend of passion, dedication and professionalism to this mission – for the rewards of success will not be shared only by us. Our children, our grandchildren and future generations will recognize our successful stewardship of the natural environment and its conservation.
