About MESCOT Kinabatangan, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo Today, all of the MESCOT Initiatives fall under the umbrella of the Batu Puteh  Community Eco-Tourism Co-operative (KOPEL Bhd.). This community-based co-  operative combines and coordinates the village eco tourism activities of:  The Miso Walai Homestay Program; The Wayon Tokou Nature Guide Association;  The Mayo do Talud Boat Service;  The MESCOT Culture Group; and the  Tungog Rainforest Eco Camp (TREC) (New!)  It also combines and coordinates the following conservation  interventions:  Floodplain Forest Habitat Rehabilitation; and   Wetland Lake Rehabilitation. The spirit of MESCOT is so very much alive that many  members of the Batu Puteh community prefer to go by the  name MESCOT.  The MESCOT Initiative embodies the spirit of  empowerment, opportunity, and hope. MESCOT has  already inspired a generation of youth within the four  villages of the Batu Puteh locale and hopes to continue to  be a model for long-term conservation and economic  development within the Lower Kinabatangan.
