People for Peat

People for Peat

The Tropical Rainforest Conservation and Research Centre (TRCRC), was established in 2012 to restore tropical rainforests and address the critical rate of biodiversity loss in Malaysia. TRCRC’s mission is two-fold: to preserve tropical rainforest plant species and lead landscape-wide protection and reforestation projects throughout the country. Joining us to shed more light on the work they do, and also to discuss a new project that they are working on called People For Peat, is Dr. Lee Jo Kien, TRCRC's lead analyst for the programme.
