VISIT MALAYSIA YEAR 2014 MASCOT: THE PROBOSCIS MONKEY

The Proboscis Monkey of Sabah has been chosen to be the mascot of this grand celebration event. The Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Malaysia has decided upon one of the most endangered of animals listed in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s Red List of Threatened Species. I think this is such a brilliant idea because our country has commitment to the protection of its ecological treasures and in particular, the conservation of its many indigenous animals provide a platform of opportunity to share with the world its many fascinating creatures that are so often hidden from the general public. Taken from The Star online news published on January 1st, the mascot appeared at LCCT airport Kuala Lumpur, welcoming guests who arrived in Malaysia.
