Confusion

Pulau Kukup National Park is one of the largest uninhabited mangrove forests in the world, and the island was declared a “Wetland of International Importance” under the RAMSAR Convention 1971, back in 2003. News that the national park was to be de-gazetted and converted to sultanate land has caused an uproar and much confusion, so we wade through the muddy waters to find out what's really happening with Dr. Ahmad Aldrie Amir, a Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow, and Coordinator of the Malaysian Mangrove Research Alliance and Network (MyMangrove).
