Despite a small NGO, Sabah Wetlands Conservation Society (SWCS) is a committed organization in wetlands conservation. For the past years, SWCS has been involved in various wetlands conservation efforts including mangrove rehabilitation in degraded mangrove areas, waterbird conservation and monitoring, research, education and for the most, managing KK Wetlands, the green lung of Kota Kinabalu city. In the month of January 2017, SWCS started its conservation rally for the year by involving the Asian Waterbird Census, a conservation effort for the migratory waterbirds.
