Macaranga Wrap-up: April 2021

Wong Siew Lyn, the co-founder, co-editor and writer at local environmental journalism portal macaranga.org is back for another Macaranga Wrap-up episode, this time for a round-up of April’s top environmental news. On this episode, we look at why Malaysia was called a “bright spot of hope” by Global Forest Watch, before looking at the not-so-good news about some marine life in Sabah, which are under threat. We also discuss Red Hongyi's powerful performance art piece which tackled climate change, and look at how art can be employed as a powerful conservation (and conversation) tool, before closing off with a celebration of bees, ahead of World Bee Day in May.
