Macaranga Wrap-Up: July 2022

Every last Monday of the month, we gather for a roundup of important environmental news from the month past, with the good folks of journalism portal, Macaranga. This month, Law Yao Hua and Wong Siew Lyn, co-founders of Macaranga, join us to discuss how over 53 NGOs are calling for more transparency surrounding environmental impact assessments (EIAs) by the Department of Environment, before we turn to the promising news that the DEWAN Rakyat has approved the National Forestry (Amendment) Bill (RUU) 2022. Looking forward to August, we've got a few "observation" days coming up, including World Elephant Day and World Orangutan Day, and we discuss how we can support these observances by supporting local NGOs working on these issues.
