Attitude and Environmental Awareness in Setiu Wetlands Terengganu, Malaysia

Wetlands provide environmental and socioeconomic benefits such as habitat for a variety of plants and animals, including endangered and threatened species; flood storage and storm-water regulation; groundwater recharge; water pollution filtration and sediment trapping; and erosion protection. Managing and growing broad levels of environmental awareness on all levels of society has become one of the most important societal goals in the last two decades, with unprecedented levels of social and political consensus. Because only things that can be measured can be managed, scientists from various disciplines are becoming increasingly interested in evaluating environmental awareness based on scientific standards. The goals of this study are to first determine the level of environmental awareness toward the Setiu Wetlands in Terengganu, and then to investigate the relationship between wetland background and wetland issues and environmental awareness among the general public on the Setiu Wetlands in Terengganu. Setiu Wetland is home to a variety of ecosystems, a diverse spectrum of wildlife, and a wealth of natural resources. To identify the key contributing elements, factor analysis was used, and the results revealed a high level of awareness toward Setiu Wetland in terms of knowledge, wetland background, wetland issues, and environmental attitude. Setiu Wetlands should have thorough management and conservation regulations in place, as the wetlands’ qualities can benefit communities. However, the public’s degree of environmental knowledge of the Setiu Wetlands in Terengganu should be measured in order for policymakers to ensure that the Setiu Wetlands are adequately conserved and managed.
