Macaranga Wrap-up: January 2022

It's been an almost farcical month, in terms of official responses to some of the nation's environmental crises. From claims of orangutans attacking humans, to the belief that logging is good for tigers, how should the community respond to such statements? We explore this and more in this month's roundup with the folks from environmental journalism portal Macaranga, Wong Siew Lyn & Law Yao Hua. Aside from that, we also discuss the renewed focus on tiger conservation and how the Kuala Lumpur Joint Statement on Tiger Conservation plans to achieve that, but also how the outbreak of the African swine fever could impact tigers and their survival in the wild. Finally we turn our attention to the deaths of several turtles in Terengganu, and the need for more enforcement of existing laws, to protect marine wildlife there.
