Cool, Clever and Carnivorous - An Insight into Carnivorous Plants in Malaysia

Carnivorous plants, with their remarkable ability to capture and digest prey, have captivated the imagination of plant enthusiasts and researchers alike. Here in biodiverse Malaysia, these plants thrive in various ecosystems, each species evolving its own remarkable mechanisms to survive in nutrient-poor environments. We speak to three members of the Malaysia Carnivorous Plants group or MyCP - Gideon Lim and Nicholas Tan who are co-founders, and Justin Chew, who manages the group's communications and strategy - to explore the intricacies of carnivorous plants, including their ecological significance, and discover the ongoing efforts to protect and preserve these extraordinary species in Malaysia today.
