Macaranga Wrap-up: August 2023

As we close yet another month in 2023, we also look back at some of the top environmental news from August, with the help of the co-founders of environmental journalism portal, Macaranga. Today, we're tackling three topics in particular, first the Nature Conservation Agreement in Sabah, considered by many to be a controversial carbon project - we'll break down what it's about, and why there are questions surrounding it. Next we discuss what happened at the IPS-MPS '23 - The Joint Meeting of the International Primatological Society (IPS) and the Malaysian Primatological Society (MPS), which was held in Kuching, which was themed: "Primates and People: A New Horizon." Finally we cheer the good news that came out in late July, where Pahang will gazette 134,183ha of land for the Al-Sultan Abdullah Royal Tigers Reserve to boost wildlife conservation efforts - great news for our dwindling tiger population. Helping us to break all this down are the co-founders of Macaranga, Wong Siew Lyn and Law Yao Hua.
