The Malaysian Nature Society website is pretty eye opening, especially for a self-confessed treehugger like me.

Some things I didn't know, along (sadly) with some things I did know:

Malaysia has a landmass of 32.86 million ha, of which about 54% (19.22 mill ha) is covered with forests. In the last 15 years alone, we have seen natural areas being cleared, making way for development, logging, plantations, oil pipelines, mining, dams and an array of housing plans. Malaysian has lost about 60,000 species of life forms a year since 2000.
