The earliest records of exploration by D.F.A. Harvey referring to the collection of plants in Endau-Rompin predate to 1881. His Majesty Sultan Sir Ibrahim Johor then proclaimed an area of 1,014 square kilometres as an Endau wildlife reserve Rompin in 1933 via Gezzet Notification (G.N) 827. It further began the chronological history of the establishment of the Johor National Park Corporation.
In accordance with Section 3 of the Johor National Park Enactment of 1989, the Johor National Park Corporation was founded on January 1, 1992. By being preserved and used to enhance education, health, aesthetic value, and public recreation, we can maintain and safeguard wildlife, plant life, items important to geology, geography, history, and anthropology, as well as other scientific and scenic interests.
The recognition of Endau-Rompin Johor National Park as an ASEAN Heritage Park is the fourth for Malaysia after Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak, Kinabalu National Park, Sabah and National Park (Pahang, Kelantan and Terengganu). Through the 7th ASEAN Heritage Park Conference in Bogor Indonesia on 31 October to 3 November 2022, Endau-Rompin Johor National Park has been recognized as the 51st ASEAN Heritage Park.
The recognition of Endau-Rompin Johor National Park is a success for the country in general and the Johor State Government, in particular in improving the management and conservation of biodiversity. At the same time, this success enhances the image of Endau-Rompin Johor National Park as an area of biodiversity interest at the regional level.
At this conference as well, JNPC Director Mr. Taufik bin Bahar gave a presentation on “Best practices and models of business planning for Protected Areas of the region and beyond” to the delegates present at this conference. JNPC will continue to be committed to ensuring that the value of conservation and biodiversity of the natural environment is maintained, so that valuable treasures can be inherited by future generations.
