Dear Members of Waterfall Survivors,

We are helping to circulate the below information. Please copy and post in your notes to help our forest.

From Matthias:
Dear members of Eco Warriors Malaysia - got the messages below from Teck Wynn

This page summarizes the importance of the site:

Dear Matthias,

The Selangor State Agriculture Corporation (PKPS) made a proposal to acquire the whole of Langat South Forest Reserve (6908 ha) for an oil palm plantation. The Menteri Besar has given Selangor Forestry Department and the Selangor Wildlife Department two weeks to come up with justification for conserving the reserve.

The departments have decided to hold a rapid assessment of the area next week (22-26 December). The assessment will include the following activities:

Camera trapping of large mammals
Identification of small animals & birds (during the day)
Identification of frogs and reptiles (at night)
Inventory of standing volume of timber
Identification of plants
Socio-economy survey

MNS has been requested to help contact other experts to help with the assessment. Any assistance from Ecowarriors on this matter would be much appreciated. It would be great if we can get volunteers involved.

Thank you and regards,

Lim Teck Wyn
Hon. Secretary
