About your guide

Lasal is a licensed local nature guide that has worked with the WWF-Malaysia for 41 years. He is renowned for his warm personality, in-depth knowledge, and strong relationship with numerous local communities that serve as the stakeholders for his tours.

With a Master’s in Zoology, he joined WWF-Mobile Malaysia’s Educational Unit to help halt the destruction of our planet’s natural resources and foster a culture of peaceful coexistence with nature. Years later, he is still committed to his purpose.

“My passion to educate the younger generation has kept me going. I’ve faced many challenges along the way including a near-death accident near Mentakab, being threatened by illegal poachers, chased out of a school in Butterworth, and missing the birth of my first child, but I chose to stay on till today… A good captain always goes down with the ship.”

    “It was an insightful trip for me, and it made me more aware of the need to take care of the environment, especially water. When we visited Kampung Kuantan, I was truly amazed by the fireflies. We really need to protect these endangered insects, otherwise future generations will never get an opportunity to witness their glowing beauty.”


      Head of Communications – WWF Malaysia

      “This is to share a warm feeling that I experienced while conducting a focus group survey on 20‑40 year old participants.” When asked, “Why are you supporting WWF, why do you care about the environment?”, they answered: ” ….I remember the WWF Bata Mobile Unit with the panda logo and an Indian man telling us stories about protecting wild animals…and the elephant song…that touched me to support” “Lasal, you are the man!”

        “The field trip to Bukit Melawati gave us an opportunity to appreciate the exhibits that are highlighted, especially those related to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives in defending our country against foreign occupation. I enjoyed myself tremendously. This is the first time I have ever taken part in such a nature-based field trip.”
