Hong Leong Bank Mangrove Restoration Project launching ceremony was held at Kuala Selangor Nature Park on the (Friday) 11th February 2022. The restoration of mangroves is undertaken by Hong Leong Bank incorporation with Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) which aim to create a healthy mangrove ecosystem. The Government of Malaysia has given the authority to MNS to restore the degraded Mangrove Forest. A total of 15 ha of degraded land will be restored under this project.
