MNS Activities for Month of May

Segari Beach Forest, coastal Lumut

Sunday 16th May 2010, 8am – The Lumut coast is well-known for its seascape and beach resorts. Not so well-known is the fact that it is the site of a High Conservation Value (HCV) forest, Segari Melintang Forest Reserve. This forest has been accorded HCV status because it safeguards the critically endangered Balau putih tree Shorea lumutensis. We will look out for this rare and endemic Dipterocarp while birding around the perimeter of this forest. Later we will visit the nearby Turtle Sanctuary before having a picnic lunch on the beach.

This trip is open to all members, whether you are a birder or not. Please contact either of the trip coordinators Lim Kim Chye 016-553 8431 & Lim Swee Yian 016-422 3895 to confirm attendance.

Going green – Okay, now what?

Saturday 29th May, 2-4pm – Attend an unusual talk that helps one decipher gibberish like climate change, carbon offset, biodiversity loss and strings of difficult-to-understand issues that are fueling Malaysia’s and worldwide headlines. The speaker Casey Ng attempts to cut through the clutter with eye-opening examples that are easy to digest for beginners. The talk will be held at Nature Lodge and admission is free for MNS members. Non-members are required to pay a donation of RM2, unless he/she signs up as member on the spot. Limited seats. To book a place, please contact Lee Yuat Wah at or SMS 017-5775641.

Log on to catch the latest news, updates and happenings.
