It's that time of the month, where we speak to environmental journalism portal Macaranga's co-founders, Law Yao Hua and Wong Siew Lyn, for a recap of conservation-related news, from the month past. This month, we've had floods on our minds a lot, with floods already happening in parts of the country, and a looming lawsuit against DBKL and the FT Ministry over their flood mitigation plans - or lack thereof. We also discuss the sand mining projects over in Sabah that residents say are destroying the environment, and being carried out without the necessary EIA approval, and then the First Conference on Climate that was held at Parliament at the start of the month. Looking ahead, we have National Environment Day coming up at the end of October, and discuss what's in store there, with Yao Hua and Siew Lyn.
