Save Ulu Muda

 

SAVE THE ULU MUDA FOREST RESERVE (UMFR)

  • 163,103 hectares of rainforest in Kedah.
  • Water catchment area for Perlis (70% of raw water from Sungai Muda), Kedah (96% of raw water from Sungai Muda) and Penang (80% of raw water from Sungai Muda).
  • PBAPP is calling for a “total ban” of logging in the UMFC because logging threatens water supply for a total of 4.09 million people in Perlis, Kedah and Penang.
