RANAU: The Sabah Parks (TTS) will need to review its strategic plan following the increase in the number of marine and landed parks under its custody, especially on its roles pertaining to conservation.
The chairman of its Board of Trustees, Dr Joachim Gunsalam said, earlier, TTS was only given the responsibility of handling the Kinabalu National Park, but now it had to also handle the other landed parks namely the Crocker Range Park and the Tawau Hills Park.
"While for the marine park, it includes the Tun Sakaran Marine Park, Sipadan Island Park, as well as three other parks namely the Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tiga Island and Turtle Island," he told Bernama after launching the agency's July Seminar, here, today.
Joachim, who is also the state assemblyman for Kundasang, said among others, the recruitment of more officers was needed to enhance the work quality of the agency, in line with its goal to conserve the marine and landed parks under its custody.
He said, it required good planning to develop the parks so as to attract the tourist and at the same time to conserve the flora and fauna existing in the parks. Bernama
