A Proposed Tourism Project for Kuala Selangor Nature Park?

According to a recent report in the Malay Mail, there is a proposal to develop the 292-hectare Kuala Selangor Nature Park (KSNP) into a tourist destination. Though there is nothing in black and white yet, the plan is causing worry among the many stakeholders looking to preserve the safety and sanctity of this wetlands area. What's happening over in the area? We speak to Andrew Sebastian, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Ecotourism & Conservation Society of Malaysia (ECOMY) to find out more.
