Malaysia: ‘Gazette Kg Dew as forest reserve quick’

The Star 21 May 18;

BAGAN SERAI: Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) and Kampung Dew Firefly Eco-Tourism Association are appealing to the Perak govern­ment to expedite the gazetting of a firefly habitat zone in Kampung Dew here as a forest reserve.

He said the suggestion of gazetting the habitat zone had been submitted several years ago, but was not implemented by the Perak Land and Mines Office (PTG) and the Kerian District and Land Office.

“The PTG informed us that there was no problem for the area to be gazetted, but there is the issue of overlapping claims of land ownership,” he said — Bernama
