Mangrove Magic in Malaysia

Published 31st August 2010 - 0 comments - 2405 views -

My latest video from the Th!nk3 Kuala Lumpur trip: Mangrove Magic.

 

We visited Kuala Selangor Nature Park, which is run by the Malaysian Nature Society. Its extensive mangroves and forest areas have been rehabilitated for recreational use. In 1987 it had been mooted as a golf course. The MNS is a Non Government Organisation.

The Park which is about an hour's drive from KL, is mostly financed by users who pay entry fees and for other services. It receives some corporate funding but nothing from the Malaysian government.

KSNP is a tribute to the enthusiasm and commitment of the people who work there. Thanks for your help and hospitality.
