Naib Presiden Persatuan Pencinta Alam Malaysia (MNS), Prof. Dr. Ahmad Ismail berkata, larian air deras di permukaan yang membawa lumpur ke tasik akibat pembukaan hutan dan penarahan bukit di kawasan sekitarnya merupakan faktor utama yang mengganggu ekosistem tasik ini.

Why the authority do not use results of research for their planning and development. In the case of Cameron Highlands is another good example of not using or referring to scientific data.

Environmental toxins are causing disturbance to women’s puberty stage. At the same time, this thing disturbs the men. This exposure to excess female hormones, this is one of the reasons behind GID

Biodiversity studies not just on the surface but probably the fossils. Cement industries may caused lost of species and may be extincts

Humble snails are no match for the might and indifference of the global cement industry. So it has proved for the now extinct Plectostoma sciaphilum, a rather beautiful snail that lived only on a single limestone hill in Peninsular Malaysia. A cement company blew up the entire hill and all remaining molluscs with it. All that is left of its former habitat is a big hole in the ground filled with water.
The neighbouring isolated hills are being quarried by Malaysian multinational YTL, owner of Wessex Water, where snails such as the bizarrely-shaped Hypselostoma elephas are in critical danger.
More than 22,000 species feature in conservationists’ ‘under threat’ list including this Malaysian snail!

Visiting after accidents, helping the victims and promising for future are not enough for the current generation and situation. Public want to see actions. If same promise is given every year and same problems public facing every year, something is not right. Everybody know the cause of landslides, flood and river contamination. Every year repeating similar things. About time the government have to solve it. We don't want government spending more money to solve the problems than incomes from the industries in Cameron Highlands. Please refer to the experts not to those holding position in the authority and having personal interest.

We are leading in many aspects of biodiversity BUT we are not champion it. Government and private sectors must give more support to encourage more young scientists in biodiversity especially on behaviour and ecology not just on genetic and molecular biology. MK Land and related Foundation leading the examples.
