Macaranga Wrap-up: September 2020

In this month's roundup, SL Wong and Law Yao Hua, the editors of Macaranga.org, join us to discuss more environmental issues making headlines. First, we look at the impact of Covid-19 on ecotourism, and how communities that are reliant on this form of tourism are adopting alternative ways to survive. We also discuss river pollution in Malaysia, looking back at the most recent case in Sungai Gong which caused water supply to be disrupted for 1.2 million users for days. Looking to October, we discuss what to look forward to during World Migratory Bird Day on the 10th of October, while discussing why areas where we can observe migratory birds may be threatened by development and pollution.
