Saving Rivers, Saving Lives

A lifelong campaigner for the people of Sarawak, Peter Kallang, the chairman of the SAVE Rivers Network, was very recently honoured with the 2019 Seacology Prize, for leading a successful campaign to halt the construction of the Baram Dam. The prize is awarded to people for protecting island environments, and Peter is the first Sarawakian and the second Malaysian to receive this honour, for his work through the Save Rivers Network. He joins us to share more about his work in supporting and championing indigenous communities and their rights across Sarawak and beyond.
