Malaysia Zone Wetlands

Malaysia is blessed with very long coastline; offering a variety of wetland habitat types which are both natural and manmade.

Around the coastal regions we find mudflats and mangrove forests, salt pans, prawn and fish ponds. Further inland we find freshwater lakes and rice paddies, which are ideal habitats for the specialist wetland birds.

The peninsular is also an important migratory stop for birds from Siberia, Manchuria and China.
