Macaranga Wrap-Up: June 2024

As we close off June, 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. Today we are joined by Law Yao Hua to discuss three main topics, first, the deaths of a mother elephant and her three calves in Johor - was poisoning the culprit? Next, we turn our attention to a study which points to Malaysia as topping the list of countries with the highest microplastic consumption. Finally, Sarawak has been hailed for planting 35 million trees since 2021, as part of the 100 Million Tree Planting Campaign 2021-2025. A great effort, or is there some greenwashing at play? We discuss this and more on this month's episode.
