91 year old Dr Lim Boo Liat is regarded as a pioneer in the field of zoology in Malaysia. Since 1953, he has written 302 scientific researches on various fields in zoology - papers on small animals, reptiles and amphibian ecology among others. As a result, he has several animals named after him - which is quite a feat. Winner of the Merdeka award in 2013, Dr. Lim Boo Liat joins us to share the inspiring story of his life and career, and his thoughts on the field of zoology and its potential as a career path in Malaysia.
