In Malaysia, Department of Wildlife and National Parks, commonly known as PERHILITAN (Jabatan Perlindungan Hidupan Liar dan Taman Negara in Malay) is a governmental organisation that is responsible for the protection, management and preservation of wildlife and national parks in Peninsular Malaysia.

The department was established under the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 which consolidated all the state game departments in Peninsular Malaysia. As of 2006, the department is placed under the purview of Malaysian Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment. It is directed by a director and that post is currently held by Rasid bin Samsudin.

National parks in Sabah are the responsibility of the Sabah Wildlife Department and Sabah Parks while for Sarawak, it is under Sarawak Forest Corporation.
