Macaranga Wrap-up: March 2024

Macaranga Wrap-up is our monthly show on Earth Matters where we give you a roundup of the top environmental news from the month past, curated by the co-founders of the environmental journalism portal Macaranga. Wong Siew Lyn and Law Yao Hua return this March with updates on some illegal wildlife trading cases, involving both African rhinoceros and reptiles. We will also take a look at the recent ruling involving the European Union and the Malaysian government, where the World Trade Organisation rejected Malaysia's complaint against an EU decision that biodiesel made from palm oil should not be considered a renewable biofuel, though the EU will also have to make some adjustments to the measures they introduced. Finally, over in Johor, the Merambong seagrass meadow next to Forest City Johor, is reportedly thriving after restoration. A development + conservation success story? We discuss this and more.
