Protection Permanent Reserved Forest (as State Park). Gazetted under the National Forestry Act 1984 (Section 10). The state park consists of Mata Ayer FR and Wang Mu FR and have also been classified as forest sanctuary for wildlife (Ps. G.N. 17-2009), soil protection forest (Ps. G.N. 16-2009) and water catchment forest (Ps. G.N. 73-2008).
There is discrepancy between the area reported in the gazette notification (4,379.8ha) and the area as mapped in the gazette plan (5,266.6ha). This is also applicable for Mata Ayer and Wang Mu Forest Sanctuary for Wildlife, Mata Ayer and Wang Mu Soil Protection Forest and Mata Ayer and Wang Mu Water Catchment Forest as they share the same gazettement plan as for Perlis State Park. Size as per gazette notification will be used in the analysis.


Today, there are less than 200 Malayan tigers left in our country.
