SL Wong and Law Yao Hua, the editors of Macaranga.org, return for their monthly show, to discuss major environmental news from July this year, and to highlight events and issues to look out for in August. This month, we discuss the passing of pioneering Malaysian zoologist Dr Lim Boo Liat, and the challenges to replicate his efforts in the current academic climate. We also take a look at how the plans to expedite the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Conservation blueprint might mean for ecotourism. We also look ahead to World Indigenous Day which will be observed on the 9th of August, and explore how our indigenous communities are struggling, post-MCO. Macaranga.org is a journalism portal covering environment and sustainability-related topics in Malaysia.
