Macaranga Wrap-Up: February 2024

We're closing off February this week, cue another roundup of top conservation news with the co-founders of environmental journalism portal Macaranga, Law Yao Hua and Wong Siew Lyn. 2023 was the planet's warmest year on record, and just last Saturday, Met Malaysia issued a Level 1 Heat Wave Warning. Scientists have underlined the need for urgent action, but it has also led coral ecologists to warn about coral bleaching and even add new alert levels to track potential risks to coral reefs. We discuss this first, before turning our attention to the recently convened 2nd meeting of the Ad Hoc Joint Task Force (JTF) on the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR), and discussions around the smooth implementation and understanding of the EUDR here in Malaysia and Indonesia. Finally, we look to East Malaysia, where Sarawak has nearly doubled the population of its crocodiles, but this has also led to increased human-crocodile conflicts - we discuss the implications of this conservation success and more.
