Macaranga Wrap-up: August 2020

SL Wong and Law Yao Hua, the editors of Macaranga.org, return for their monthly show, to discuss major environmental news from August this year, and to highlight events and issues to look out for in September. This month, we will discuss whether human-elephant conflicts are on the rise, and we will also dissect Malaysia’s decision to shelve the tabling of the Transboundary Haze Pollution Act. Looking forward to September, we wonder what implications there will be for the environment, following the Sabah state elections.
