Safeguarding and Supporting Setiu Wetlands

Safeguarding and Supporting Setiu Wetlands

Setiu Wetlands is one of the largest natural wetlands in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, and is the only wetland in Malaysia with nine – though some say ten - interconnected ecosystems such as beaches, mudflats, lagoons, estuaries, rivers, islands, coastal forests and mangrove forests. But recently, a local environmental NGO, Ecoswed Initiative, raised the alarm about licensed sand mining activities causing damage and destruction to the beach area, and also to the Setiu Wetlands State Park, which is located next to the coastal forest.  We find out what's happening over in Terengganu from Dr Jarina Mohd Jani, a researcher and lecturer from the Faculty of Science and Marine Environment at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, who will also share more about what this unique and amazing ecosystem has to offer.
