MNS (BirdLife in Malaysia) have produced a “blueprint” for conserving key habitats critical for many of Malaysia’s threatened birds.
Directory of Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in Malaysia – the 10th such guide in Asia – was launched at a high-profile event in Tanjung Tuan, Malaysia on 10 March. …
Parts of the IBA currently lack formal protection from logging, even though the site supports important populations of Plain-pouched Hornbill Aceros subruficollis among 274 bird species, over 3,000 flowering plants and 100 mammals.
“It is hoped that equipped with this critical publication, the Federal and State governments, NGOs and other civil societies would be spurred and guided in their concerted actions to conserve the biological diversity.” said Dr Loh.
