Macaranga Wrap-up: September 2021

 In this month's roundup of environmental news with Macaranga's Wong Siew Lyn & Law Yao Hua, we celebrate the success of Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve being saved from development, albeit after a very long and tiring campaign. We also look at how this issue and the recently tabled Protected Areas Act in Pahang is related to the powers and roles of the state government in deciding what to conserve or not. Next, we discuss how Malaysian authorities seized smuggled hornbills and rhinoceros horns in KLIA, highlighting once more our country's central position as a wildlife trade hub.
