Aidi Abdullah Invited to Join Langkawi Geopark Ambassador Program

Aidi Abdullah, Chief Naturalist at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, has been invited to join the Langkawi Geopark Ambassador program by the Langkawi Development Authority.

 In this role as an ambassador, Aidi will be responsible for cultivating awareness, interest and conservation efforts for the UNESCO Geopark, along with continuing his day-to-day role as the Chief Naturalist at the Four Seasons Resort.

“I’m honoured to be recognised as a Langkawi Geopark Ambassador,” said Aidi. “Kilim Karst Geopark is one of the world’s most diverse tropical eco-systems, making for an extraordinary and unique adventure for both visitors and residents alike. It is my awesome responsibility to educate and promote conservation efforts so that future generations have the same opportunity to witness Langkawi’s rare wildlife species – ranging from lizards and snakes to monkeys and birds - along with the stunning geological formations and fauna in its natural habitat.”

Aidi, a 14-year veteran at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, has been instrumental in developing sustainable practices at the resort and throughout Langkawi. Through his efforts, Aidi has reduced carbon emissions and oil spills by regulating and lowering boat speeds within the Geopark and encouraging boat owners to switch from two-stroke to four-stroke engines. Aidi also has developed and leads on-going eco-tourism experiences at Four Seasons Resort Langkawi, including educational Mangrove & Eagles Safari tours and an annual mangrove planting initiative in Kilim Karst Geopark. Since 2010, more than 5,000 trees have been planted as a result of Aidi’s efforts.

“As with all conservation, awareness is key,” Aidi added. “At Four Seasons, I have the pleasure of educating and inspiring guests on a daily basis with our engaging Mangrove & Eagles Safari tour. For me, it’s the best part of my day and allows me to showcase Langkawi’s unique ecosystem and promote conservation efforts that not only impact Langkawi, but the entire world.”
