This a powerful message from the Telegraph. Check it out!
Today, we have heard the results of yesterday’s general election in Malaysia; the Coalition are back in power with a lower majority; this is not good news for the rain-forest and wildlife.
Rain-forest deforestation in favor of palm oil cultivation and production will continue unless there is real pressure for change.
There are young people in Malaysia, of all races who care. The international community needs to focus attention on Malaysia too, supporting those Malaysian’s who care about the rain-forest and the wildlife.
What can the international community do to help protect the rain-forest and the animals?
Here are two examples:
- Focus on Malaysia wildlife tourism being misrepresented and inaccurate; with the huge falls in wildlife over the last ten years, more and more wildlife tourism is enclosures or quasi- zoos – this is very different from the rain-forest, the natural habitat; major Western travel companies probably need to be more careful with accuracy win descriptions of wildlife tourism
- Encourage children around the World to sponsor endangered animals, like those in Malaysia.
