Because Forests Matter - Defending the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve

It's been over a year but the battle to save the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve is far from over. Even though the Selangor State Legislative Assembly had passed a unanimous resolution last November to stop the degazettement of the area, the Menteri Besar of Selangor is still considering clearing 931 hectares of pristine peat forest, for a mixed development project. We catch up with the Defend the North Kuala Langat Forest Reserve coalition for updates.
