Rising more than 1000m above sea level on the Titiwangsa Range, and straddling the Pahang-Selangor border, Fraser’s Hill is a highland rainforest area that is a popular ecotourism getaway for many, and affectionately known as the little England of Malaysia. There are rumblings that Fraser's Hill might be turned into a state park - though the idea is very early in the development stage - and to brand around 83,000 hectares of land as the Fraser's Hill Forest Complex. What are the pro's and con's of turning the area into a state park, and what considerations must be taken into account before this idea is executed? Two concerned and long-time residents of Fraser's Hill, Nik Jassmin Hew and Sean Yap, who are also the Chairperson and Vice Chairperson respectively of Persatuan Alam dan Warisan Bukit Fraser (PAWBF), join us to share their concerns and ideas.
