It doesn't grow on trees: Peka says more funds needed for environment. [Newspaper] (2020)


KUALA LUMPUR: The Association for the Protection of the Natural Heritage of Malaysia (Peka) has urged the government to set aside funds to acquire state-of-the-art equipment to curb illegal environmental activities and designate more green spaces. Association president Puan Sri Shariffa Sabrina Syed Akil said that was on Peka's wish list and she hoped that it would be considered in the 2021 Budget, which will be tabled in Parliament on Friday. "We hope to see more allocations for the creation of forest reserves, as well as the preservation and enlarging of existing reserves. "At the same time, funds must be given for the modernisation of enforcement, such as satellite imaging services, to detect illegal encroachment, logging and mining in forest reserves or buffer zones.
