You've Got A Friend in Bukit Kiara

Ir Dr Kribanandan Naidu, President, Friends of Bukit Kiara (FoBK)

You've Got A Friend in Bukit Kiara

Bukit Kiara remains as one of the few large green open spaces found right here in Kuala Lumpur, and is a hugely popular recreational site for urbanites in the Klang Valley. The green lung also provides a number of ecosystem services, including flood mitigation and erosion and landslide prevention, just to name two. But with the whole area not fully gazetted and protected, there is still work to be done to protect this vital space from more development. We catch up with Ir Dr Kribanandan Naidu, the President of Friends of Bukit Kiara (FoBK), for an update on everything the group has been working on, and why they continue to fight for the preservation of this area as a whole.
