The Quiet Destruction of Ulu Muda
Hymeir Kamaruddin, Eco-guide and Director of Earth Lodge
The Ulu Muda Forest Reserve lies on the north-eastern flank of Kedah, bordering Thailand.

We get the low-down of what's happening to the forest reserve from Hymeir Kamaruddin, an eco-guide and Director of Earth Lodge, who has been exploring and working in the Ulu Muda area since the late 1990s.
