Geographical location and natural characteristics of Kuala Gula

Kuala Gula is a small fishing village located in the Kerian district in the state of Perak, about 50 km west of Taiping town and 80 km south of Penang. The local community shifted to Kuala Gula about 70-80 years ago from Teluk Rubiah. In earlier days, the main agricultural crop was the sugarcane which supported the local sugar industry. Hence, “Kuala Gula” as the name of the village was established viz. a coastal village that produces sugar.

The current population in Kuala Gula is about 6,500 people. The Chinese form the majority, followed by Malays and Indians. Local people are mainly involved in the fishing industry (fish, shrimp and crab catches), cockle culture, and associated cottage industries related to shrimp paste and dry shrimp making.

Due to its strategic location and rich natural resources, Kuala Gula is a popular ecotourism site. The vast mangrove forest, scenic river and sea views, traditional fishermen lifestyle and culture, rich coastal biodiversity, various rare and threatened bird species, are the few attractions Kuala Gula can offer to people who wants to get away from the buzz of city life.

For plant lovers, Kuala Gula is home to 17 true and associated mangrove plant species. For wildlife enthusiasts, you can see a number of wildlife species. For bird watchers, Kuala Gula is a haven for about 200 bird species. At night, you can observe owls hunting for preys in oil palm plantations and also hundreds of fireflies on the mangrove trees. Kuala Gula is really full of wonders !

Introduction to Kuala Gula Ecotourism Association

The Kuala Gula Chinese Ecotourism Association (also known as CETA) was established in October 2003, with the assistance of Wetlands International under the Kuala Gula wetland conservation and wise use project. The mission of CETA is to protect the natural resources of Kuala Gula and improve the understanding of the importance and functions of mangroves among the local community and tourists.

At the same time, CETA also creates job opportunities that provide alternative income for the local community. CETA members are made up of a group of qualified nature eco-guides arising from the local community. They have received a series of nature training courses conducted specifically by Wetlands International.
