Because forests matter – Defending the Kuala Langat north forest reserve

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

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 de-gazetting of the area, the state menteri besar is still considering clearing 931 hectares of pristine peat forest for a mixed development project. BFM catches up with the Defend the North Kuala Langat Forest Reserve coalition for updates.

On the line are Amanda Ng, programme officer at Empower Malaysia, and Nagarajan Rengasamy, manager at the Forest and Coastal Programme Global Environment Centre.
