Jan 24, 2024

Those living near the Kinabalu Unesco Geopark should leverage on its newly-acquired status to promote nature tourism, says Datuk Christina Liew.

The Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister said the area's diversity of flora and fauna as well as the geological landscape were among its unique features.

"Such diversity is in itself a nature-based tourism product that is of high value and needs to be tapped by local communities in Kota Belud, Kota Marudu and Ranau," she said at a ceremony coinciding with Sabah Parks' diamond jubilee in Kota Belud on Saturday (Jan 20).
