Bird SanctuaryPrint this page
Many of TNB’s power plants have won recognition for the use of clean technologies, and for supporting valuable wildlife. The 300ha ash ponds at Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Power Station, for example, have been recognised as a migratory shorebird sanctuary by the Asia Pacific Migratory Waterbird Conservation Strategy which has included the power plant in the East Asian - Australasian Shorebird Site Network. Every February, the site attracts thousands of shorebirds including the endangered Nordmann’s Greenshank, lesser adjutant, Chinese egret, spoonbilled sandpiper as well as the Malaysian plower, Asian dowitcher and Far Eastern curlew. These birds fly through Kuala Selangor on their way further south to escape the harsh winters of Siberia, Mongolia, Alaska and China.
The management is committed to working with local NGOs and the international community to preserve this manmade habitat of migratory shorebirds, which is regularly visited by bird watchers and environmentalists.
