With the help of a significant event, Sabah reveals the Kinabalu UNESCO Global Geopark at the World Travel Market 2023. This was organized at London’s Excel. On behalf of the Ministry of Tourism, Hon. Datuk Joniston Bangkuai, defined the Kinabalu UNESCO Global Geopark as a gold mine in terms of spectacular sceneries, exotic biodiversity, and geological marvels, emphasizing both its natural loveliness and deep geological implication.

This accomplishment is very important for Sabah, as this helped it becoming world’s third location after China and Korea, to accomplish the much-respected triple crown status.

Two other UNESCO “crowns” of Sabah feature the Kinabalu Park, chosen in 2000 as a World Heritage Site and in June 2014, as the UNESCO Crocker Range Biosphere Reserve.

With this declaration, the global network of UNESCO Global Geoparks has full-grown into 195 sites in all over 48 nations, additionally hardening Kinabalu Park’s position among the most astonishing natural and cultural wonders of the world. It is vital to understand that Sabah Parks plays a critical role in terms of management, protection, and promotion of the geological heritage within the Kinabalu Geopark.

This include making these exceptional geological possessions available to the public and guaranteeing long-term preservation, while contributes to the search of UNESCO Global Geopark status actively.
