About the Tropical Rainforest Conservation & Research Centre

Tropical Rainforest Conservation & Research Centre (TRCRC) is a not-for-profit Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) based in Kuala Lumpur. TRCRC’s core objective is to preserve rainforests and endangered plant species through the establishment of 'Tropical Rainforest Living Collections' across Malaysia where seeds from threatened plants are collected, germinated, planted and eventually re-introduced back into their native habitats.
