Take A Walk on the Wild Side at Bukit Kiara

Take A Walk on the Wild Side at Bukit Kiara

Bukit Kiara is a much loved green lung in our rather green lung deprived city centre. A former rubber estate, the area is now a popular spot for thousands of Klang Valley residents in search of ways to commune with nature. The area is not fully gazetted though, and the NGO Friends of Bukit Kiara (FoBK) have long been championing the protection and preservation of this area, and are always working towards raising awareness of the importance of keeping Bukit Kiara green and intact. They are organising FOBK Bukit Kiara Hill Walk in conjunction with Earth Day 2023 on the 21st of May, and we find out more about this from Leon Koay, the President of FOBK, who will also remind us about the many wonders found in this urban forest, including the world’s largest firefly!
