Macaranga Wrap-up: April 2022

Wong Siew Lyn and Law Yao Hua, the Co-Founders of environmental journalism portal Macaranga, return for their monthly round-up of top environmental news from the month past. This month, we discuss how residents of Klang are exploring the possibility of taking action against the government for their failure to respond adequately to the floods that hit them in December last year, before turning our attention to how the feasibility of forest plantations were questioned in Pahang's recent state legislative assembly, where the state government says 63% of cleared sites has been replanted, but Macaranga's reporting suggests otherwise. Finally we look forward to International Day of Biodiversity which falls on May 22nd, and discuss things we can do in conjunction with this celebration.
