#GenerationRestoration - Examples from Malaysia

Back in January of this year, scientists devised what they called the "10 golden rules for reforestation", around ‘right tree, right place’ principle. These rules challenged the myth that ‘all tree planting is good’ and brought out discussions of best practices for protecting and restoring the world’s forests. Many of those rules were already being put into practice by conservationists here in Malaysia, and we speak to  Afzaa Aziz (Tropical Rainforest Conservation & Research Center), Yeap Chin Aik (Malaysian Nature Society) and Martin Vogel (Koperasi Pelancongan Mukim Batu Puteh Kinabatangan Berhador or KOPEL), to find out how exactly they've been doing this through their various organisations, and the projects they are involved in. You can also join their webinar this Friday on Community-Powered Conservation Case Studies, for more information.
