No tree, no animal
Malaysian Nature Society
Issue 37 | December 2015
The Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) was Malaysia's largest and oldest non-government environment organisation. It protected, managed and conserved Malaysia's natural heritage and its rich biological diversity.
Since 1950, Malaysia had lost more than half of its natural rainforest. The Belum-Temengor rainforest was 130 million years old (older than the Amazon) and was one of the last refuges for many endangered animals. The rainforest was continuously being logged and, as a result, many animals did not survive. The task was to raise awareness for nature's coexistence with wildlife and raise funds to help preserve the Belum-Temengor rainforest.
