Connecting people with Nature
What we do
Fuze Ecoteer is a social enterprise that focuses on conservation and the community. We aim to connect people with nature. We have 3 conservation projects on the Perhentian Islands. The projects focus on sea turtle conservation, marine research and waste management and eco-education. We also support 2 other organizations in Malaysia and Indonesia. They are the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Java and the Malayan Rainforest Station in Merapoh.
How you can support us
We invite you to support these projects via volunteering with us. You can choose to volunteer at any one of our projects according to your interest. Volunteers will get to share ideas with the team and aid the team in their work. You can also start your own mini projects and experience the islanders’ way of life.
Moreover, you can organise a school trip with us to one of the projects. Additionally, we offer university field trips to our project sites as well. These trips are filled with adventure and eco-education for the students. Furthermore, the programmes can be tailored to specific subjects or requirements to suit the students’ needs. Apart from that, we also organize corporate programmes such as team-building activities and corporate social responsibility programmes. Therefore, why not bring your company for our corporate volunteering programme?
Not only that, we work all over Malaysia. Even if you conduct a beach clean in Port Dickson, you are still supporting our conservation projects in the Perhentian!

We aim to educate the local community on sustainable living on the islands. We work closely with the island children. They are involved in our marine conservation projects and research through our Eco Club activities.
We protect the sea turtles of the Perhentian Islands. We do so by nest protection and facial photo ID. Moreover, we run a turtle citizen science project. We are also the turtle hotline for any sightings and incidents involving turtles on the islands.
We study the marine ecosystems in the Perhentian Islands. This project also campaigns for their protection by involving the dive community. In addition, the project also studies the waste management system on the island.
The Centre rescues and rehabilitates wildlife caught in the illegal wildlife trade. The Centre also houses some rescued wildlife that cannot be released back into the wild. It also works to educate the local community on wildlife conservation.
The organization conducts research on various subject matter in the rainforest of Merapoh. It also aims to educate the local communities on rainforest research and conservation. This is done to empower and increase awareness among the communities
