Art for Conservation

To celebrate Malaysia’s rich biological diversity, WCS Malaysia has teamed up with aspiring local artists and young students to advance environmental conservation through art. The images portray WCS’s flagship species groups as well as Malaysia’s iconic indigenous species.

My Mother’s Eyes

Deep Beauty

Splash

Sarawak Beauty

Mary Anne Vaz creates conservation awareness through her paintings and stories. Her musical drama, “Rainbow Birds “, won the Chief Minister’s Cup in 2002 in the state-wide musical drama contest. It features a Kelabit girl trying to save birds in Sarawak from poachers. She also mentors young artists and public speakers apart from organizing conservation-awareness events.
'My Mother's Eyes', 'Deep Beauty', 'Splash' and 'Sarawak Beauty' are some art pieces donated to WCS Malaysia as part of her commitment to conservation.
