There are four types of geoheritage conservation mechanism in Langkawi Global Geopark, namely geosites, geological monuments, and geoforest park and landscape of scenic areas. These geoheritage conservation mechanisms are being implemented at various stages from planning to establishment and monitoring. Under Langkawi Geopark Management Plan, Biodiversity Group of Malaysia has identified nine potential bio sites for biological conservation in Langkawi Global Geopark.

These bio sites are identified based on the presence of rare and endemic species where the original location of the species was found and described. The nine bio sites are :-
  • i) Gunung Raya
  • ii) Wat Wanaram
  • iii) Lubuk Semilang
  • iv) Telaga Tujuh
  • v) Pulau Singa Besar
  • vi) Sungai Kilim
  • vii) Sungai Temurun
  • viii) Gua Kelawar
  • ix) Teluk Datai.

Although only nine bio sites are identified so far, this number is bound to increase in the future when more sites for the biologically important flora, invertebrate fauna and marine flora fauna groups are included.
