A local production house is striving to educate Malaysians to treat the nation’s biodiversity with kindness and respect through a new documentary series.

Nuvista Media, with support from Jabatan Perlindungan Hidupan Liar dan Taman Negara Semenanjung Malaysia (PERHILITAN) and Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD), have produced the Layar Liar Malaysia.

Layar Liar Malaysia is an online documentary series of 52 episodes featuring Malaysia’s wildlife and nature locations.

A resource bank of films, Layar Liar Malaysia is a platform of knowledge that will be easily accessible to all Malaysians especially school children to create awareness on Malaysia’s rich natural heritage.

The documentary series draw a comparison to BBC’s breathtaking nature documentary, Planet Earth.

Nuvista Media founders Harun Rahman and Lara Ariffin said Layar Liar Malaysia also paid tribute to individuals involved in environmental protection and biodiversity conservation initiatives.

The Layar Liar Malaysia series aims to create and increase awareness for Malaysia’s rich biodiversity through clear and visually striking videos. This is important considering the general public’s low level of awareness of our local animals, their elusive nature, and obscure habitats.
