Macaranga Wrap-up: October 2022

It's that time of the month, where we catch up with the good people from environmental journalism portal Macaranga, for a round-up of the top environmental news of the month past. For October's round-up, we speak to Macaranga co-founder Law Yao Hua, and discuss three main topics - firstly, the many issues surrounding quarrying plans for the Bukit Lagong forest reserve, secondly, the Central Forest Spine public outreach exhibition that was organised by the Forestry Department of Peninsular Malaysia together with the state Forestry Departments of Johor, Pahang and Perak that was held last week, and finally some pre-elections talk on whether the green agenda is on the list of candidates and parties contesting in GE-15.
