Living Gene Bank of Rainforest Trees Being Bulldozed

Two million rainforest trees within a 200-acre Rainforest Tree Nursery in Tanjung Malim, containing possibly the largest living gene bank of rainforest trees in Asia, is being destroyed and bulldozed. We discuss the importance of this area, and why the owners of this nursery should be granted more time to replant these trees.
