KUASA - The Power is Ours

Hafizudin Nasarudin, President, Persatuan Aktivis Sahabat Alam (KUASA)

KUASA - The Power is Ours

The folks behind the environmental group Persatuan Aktivis Sahabat Alam, or KUASA, believe in standing up for what's right when it comes to protecting nature and our natural resources, and empowering others to do the same. The group goes on the ground to highlight cases of environmental destruction here in Peninsular Malaysia, bringing light to these often hidden or overlooked issues, and reminding us all we have a role to play in holding authorities accountable for dubious decisions which negatively impact the environment, wildlife, and ultimately, us too. We find out more about their work from Hafizudin Nasarudin, the President of KUASA, who also updates us on the ongoing human-tiger conflict in the Gua Musang area.
