Protecting forest


MALAYSIA retains a mere 18 per cent of its virgin forest intact (The Southeast Asian Times 30/9). Alas, the high price people have paid for progress. We must draw lessons from that and avoid going down that path of progress. Protecting our virgin forest should include our mangrove forests, which have been cleared to cater for big business interests in recent times. That’s not consistent with the public good.
