Malaysia | Enviros applaud new PA aimed at critically endangered Malayan tiger, other wildlife

Tigers and other wildlife in Peninsular Malaysia now have a new refuge, as the state government of Terengganu recently axed plans to log more than 100 square kilometers (39 square miles) and created a state park instead. “This new protected area not only brings more key wildlife habitat under protection, but also protects vital forested watersheds that provide important ecosystem services to the people of Terengganu,” Sheema Abdul Aziz, a conservation ecologist and president of the Malaysia-based conservation research NGO Rimba, said in a statement. https://news.mongabay.com/2018/09/conservation-groups-herald-protection-of-tiger-habitat-in-malaysia/
