Macaranga Wrap-up - Apr 2024

As we close off April, it's time for our monthly Macaranga wrap-up show, where we give you a rundown of the top environmental news from the month past, curated by the co-founders of the environmental journalism portal, Macaranga. We speak to Law Yao Hua to discuss some major updates on the ongoing Petaling Jaya Dispersal Link (PJD Link) saga, before turning our attention to what is set to be the first open trial on rhino horn trafficking activities, in Malaysia’s courts. We also chat about the ongoing global plastics treaty negotiations happening at INC-4 in Ottawa, and why there is such an urgent need to craft a treaty to curb the scourge of plastic pollution.
