This paper presents the results of a multi-stakeholder engagement exercise conducted to define conservation priorities and explore differences in perceptions among and within stakeholder groups in Peninsular Malaysia. The authors used two workshops and two online surveys where participants identified seven general conservation themes and ranked the top five priority issues within each theme. The themes were: (1) policy and management, (2) legislation and enforcement, (3) finance and resource allocation, (4) knowledge, research and development, (5) socio-economic issues, (6) public awareness and participation and (7) rights of nature.

A critique of the paper is published on Conservation Watch.
