Very fortunate to watch movie Kadvi Hawa at GSC Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, a simple movie to promote awareness on water and drought.
In the picture the director next to me and the main actor number 3 from left.

The pictures below are from the Qatar University. How much water we need to maintain the green? They have money, I think they should invest in water research. Qatar do not have enough underground water and depending on the desalination of sea water. Shell and Exxonmobil are now looking for the source of water by improving the desalination systems.

I was in zoo management at one time. Not that easy to see the development and improvement of the zoo according to your ideas. Business always at the top, So all nature and science must fulfil the business needs. Science and education become later after business is good. we will be lucky enough is the business are not greedy enough.

Ulu Muda is very important forest in the northern corridor not just for biodiversity BUT the most important is water. Water for life.

Every body like to sit next to the number ONE. BUT sitting right in front of HIM is better because he will look at you and just wait to ask or attract his attention. Many issues were brought up on the lectures issues. The problem is we have poor leaders to mobilise the academicians and professors for the best. Always remember our professors are compatible to other professors in the top laboratories in the world. We need to know how to mobilise them and make them think and work for the country. We need to respect their ideas, appreciate them and recognise their work. Try to look from their eyes NOT opposite them.

My new experience in Qatar: meeting top scientists active in United Nation and exploring jobs in Qatar. I think we need to learn from middle east countries who are super rich given by GOD. They have oil and gas that are greedy extracted. They should develop their own people accordingly or parallel to the economy growth. Especially in term of knowledge and technologies and leading the world.

are we going to follow them or we are the followers all the time. We should be in front in our mega biodiversity country and rich in coral reef. Government, NGOs and experts must go forward in conserving marine environment, biodiversity and fisheries industries.

May be lecturers in Malaysia are living in the comfort zones or they are very busy with their works and ambitions. They have no time to support me openly. I have been talking for many years that lecturers are over loaded with work, stress and low paid relatively. We need to continue fighting. Now I am retired and need new leaders to continue. When I was in the academic association ( at local and national/MAAC) they said I am talking only for the professors. I talk about professors (without forgotten the young and raising lecturers) because all lecturers will be a professor one day. Then I talked about the benefit of retired professors. Same thing all professors will be retired one day. Now I am retired should I talk about dead professors? because all professors will die one day.

Thank you to Journalist and photographer for entertaining me talking on Parit Jawa and migratory birds. At least we have some journalists who are interested in nature and writing in the public media to educate public in general. We need more people to contribute in nature and support from the authorities.

I mentioned many times when I visited schools for nature and conservation talk. I am happy this news came out and was sent by the teachers and participants of my talks series in schools. At least the belief what I have said and need more support in educating public including government officers, politician and greedy business man.. Management of the Dam Area is important. Melaka as a small states with small water resources may be serious actions and plan need to be done.

May be state government need to be more creative in making better economy for the state instead of cutting forest and creating disasters for many people. Now is new technology era. Their style of thinking also need to be changed. We need more professional advice for the state. Those who love nature please come forward to advice the authorities.

University is a place to promote new life style such as recycle and tree planting. We can plant on campus or involving public in their locality.
Posted by ahmad at 8:10 AM
I hope tree planting in the university's campus continues. All students must plant two trees during their stay on campus 3-6 years. We make campus green and well protected. Probably the trees can be one of incomes resources for the university in the future.. The trees planted can be your contribution as alumni.
