October 2019: Sharing session on the natural wonders & conservation efforts in Terengganu
Hi everyone! We’re back with our monthly meets and this time, we will listen to our friend May discuss how conservation science is informing efforts to safeguard the forests and wildlife of Terengganu, particularly around Tasik Kenyir, the largest man-made lake in Southeast Asia. She will also share about the wonders of the Kenyir landscape, so come and explore the secrets of Kenyir with us!
May began her journey in tiger conservation 10 years ago. But she has never even seen a tiger pugmark (paw print) in the forest as she has mostly been working with people to persuade them to make decisions that will benefit nature.
After almost seven years with the Malaysian Conservation Alliance for Tigers (MYCAT), she pursued a Masters in Conservation Leadership in Cambridge, where she learnt more about the history of conservation and how it is practised today around the world. Inspired by stories of community-based conservation, she wanted to explore ways to work with Orang Asli to achieve conservation outcomes that benefit people and nature.
In 2018, May joined Rimba, a non-profit research group, as the Community Liaison Manager. She is also a proud member of the Malaysian Nature Society, the oldest nature NGO in Malaysia.
