It's NOW or NEVER!


 Are we going to let this happen?



EQUALS TO  
This place is next to Temurun Waterfalls, which is a 100% man made waterfall. Now, it is a white elephant.



Are we going to let "Langkawi Falls"?

The choice is ours otherwise the effect of deforestation will see Langkawi loses her natural heritage in a blink of an eye.



The fate of Langkawi now depends on the strength of her majority. Will you join the force or not?

If yes, simply click on this link to the petition sponsored by Malaysian Nature Society:

If not, I shall command my Na'vis to your village...heeehhheee...

Please help to send this link to as many nature lovers as possible. Thank you.

It is NOW or NEVER!!

    Dear Sir,
    Thank you for your email and concerns pertaining to the use of Orang Utan in animal shows in zoological parks in Peninsular Malaysia. As the Director General of the Department, I am equally concern about cruelty to wildlife by irresponsible parties.
    I have addressed the issues of animal welfare and abuse to all zoological parks in Peninsular Malaysia during a meeting which took place on 11 March 2010. The meeting, which was also attended by representatives from the NGOs, agreed to draw up a guideline on the welfare of animals in zoological parks, exhibition, and shows.
    In the case of A'Famosa which missed the meeting on 11 March 2010, the Department had a bilateral discussion with them on 29 April 2010 and has instructed them to cease animal shows involving Orang Utan with immediate effect. A'Famosa has given their undertaking to stop the Orang Utan and sunbear show, and the photography session with tiger. The Malacca Zoo has also been instructed to cease animal shows involving Orang Utan with immediate effect.
    For your information, the Government is in the process of enacting a new law with specific provisions on the management of zoological parks. Hopefully, the Wildlife Conservation Bill 2010 which was recently tabled in the Parliament can be enforced by the end of the year.
    The Department will do whatever that needs to be done within its authority and jurisdiction to protect wildlife in the country. The Department is always open to views and comments to improve wildlife conservation. The support and cooperation from all parties are most welcome and appreciated.
    Please be assured that I am giving my best effort and ability to protect and manage wildlife resources in the country. Thank you.

    Yours Sincerely,
    DATO' ABD. RASID SAMSUDIN
    Director General
    Department of Wildlife and National Parks
    Peninsular Malaysia

  4. Wow... what a long one, Raoul.

    Thank you very much for that. Yes, i hope the same too for the tiger here on oriental village.

    I'm not sure if that can be applied to the dolphin in captive here because the species are not native to malaysia.
