Malaysia: Save the Belum Temengor Forest Complex

In April 2006, MNS (BirdLife in Malaysia) launched a campaign to save the Belum Temengor Forest Complex.

The campaign aims to educate the public about the issues involved and to encourage the State and Federal governments to protect this critical area.

Ideally, this would entail an end to all logging, as well as permanent protection of both forest reserves.

It is hoped that with increased public awareness and proactive action from the government, Malaysian signature species, including majestic hornbills, elephants, tigers and tapirs, can remain alive in the wild rather than as stuffed museum specimens.

Birds there include the rare Plain-pouched hornbill.
