Macaranga Wrap-up: June 2023

As June draws to an end, we speak to Law Yao Hua, co-founder of environmental journalism portal Macaranga, to discuss the top environmental news of the month past. We discuss how it has been estimated that there are RM809bil worth of rare earths in Malaysia, making it a hot commodity for state governments to pursue - can this industry be developed sustainably and responsibly? We also discuss the EIA report of a proposed new Tioman Island International Airport which is now up for review, looking at the many concerns about the development, and its projected impacts to the island, before finally looking forward to activities lined up for World Tiger Day on the 29th of July.
