Critically endangered river terrapins are bred and released to replenish their declining numbers in the wild. More research to provide knowledge and creating awareness among the public and assisting the authorities for better management and conservation.

A shot at survival: The children of Kampung Dusun, near Kuala Berang in Terengganu, releasing year-old river terrapins into the river. The terrapins were hatched at the Kuala Berang Wildlife Conservation Centre from eggs collected from the wild. - KEVIN TAN/The Star

The East Asian-Australasian Flyway extends from within the Arctic Circle, through East and South-east Asia, to Australia and New Zealand, stretching across 22 countries.A flyway is the entire range of a migratory bird species (or groups of related species or distinct populations of a single species) through which it moves on an annual basis from the breeding grounds to non-breeding areas, including intermediate resting and feeding places as well as the area within which the birds migrate.

There are nine major migratory flyways around the world.

Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) organised WOW (Wings over Wetlands) inconjunction with FOW (Festival of Wings) every year to celebrate winter migration of waders from northern hemisphere and back in October-March and promoting understand, awareness and supporting conservation of important birds areas (IBA) in cluding mangrove areas such as Kuala Selangor Nature Parks (KSNP).;iRoBF1NtVZfSdQVLLqhK1idMVSh6vOOUZslcdI66pSnbb~;tFUM1Zmrztr1tYqrFYQT7SL0FuOreAFt92Bm.bps.a.10152040940682706.1073741848.133793717705/10152040940712706/?type=1&theater

During rainy season, water level increase and old wood and logs after logging floating in the river tributaries and go the the lakes. This may change the ecology of the rivers and lakes. Need more studies to understand better hydrological effects of tropical forests such as Belum-Temenggor Forest Complex.

Ikan loma is now excessively catch by locals. The fishes are migrating to upper streams when water levels high for breeding. Studies show positive results on male and female releasing eggs during their migration.

Professors need to give talk the their peers and exchange and share ideas for new knowledge and creating new knowledge. Research usually from basic things to something and new things. Then from new findings to creating thing and innovation.

University's students can critic the government but not good if creating the violence and against the government.
