Biodiversity Conservation and Management of Protected Areas in ASEAN (BCAMP)

Meeting in Bangkok

Despite the fact that his professional background is in business, rather than biological or ecological science, for the past four years, Mark Liao, founder of Sarawak EcoWarriors in Malaysia, has been leading efforts to raise awareness for biodiversity issues in Sarawak. The Youth Biodiversity Leaders ( YBL) fellowship programme, supported by BCAMP, was central in bolstering Mark’s confidence, strengthening h s commitment, and increasing his motivation. With the support of the regional YBL community, he is now planning to further his education and continue on the path of biodiversity conservation while deploying his business skills and perspectives.
The YBL programme has helped me by enhancing my knowledge and decision-making skills. Using a more holistic approach, I am now working with local stakeholders on projects that are beneficial and sustainable for all in the long term. The programme has also inspired me to pursue my education in environmental sciences.
