Macaranga Wrap-up: May 2022

Another month gone by, another round-up with our two favourite environmental journalists, Law Yao Hua and Wong Siew Lyn, the co-founders of Macaranga. This May, we look back at KL's floods and why it's supposedly happening so often, before turning our attention to the skies, and how Migratory Bird Day this year calls attention to light pollution and its impact on birds, even here in Malaysia. We also discuss the Lanthanide rare earth mining project that has been approved in Perak, which will further reduce the size of our Central Forest Spine. Looking forward to June, we discuss World Oceans Day, and the effects a warming ocean has on corals.
