Rockinâ€™ 4 the Environment has so far piqued the interest of animal conservationists around the world and raises vital funds and awareness for conservation and environmental education oriented NGO's in Malaysia. So far, the program has contributed a total of RM55,000 since 2007 to its non-profit partners.
