Some of the geosites are grouped together within a larger conservation unit called the geoforest parks while others are callsified into either geological monument or protected geosites. There are three geoforest parks and three geological monuments and at least 10 protected geosites in Langkawi. Most of these sites are located within permanent forest reserves and thus are protected under the conservation law of Peninsular Malaysia Forestry Department.
