Malaysian Nature Society

Malaysian Nature Society - As the oldest and largest local non-government environment organisation in Malaysia, the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) has played an active role in the appreciation and conservation of Malaysia's natural heritage for over half a century. MNS works closely with the Federal and State governments, the media, universities, schools, commercial firms and members of the public to protect Malaysia's precious natural gifts. MNS is a membership-based organisation, run by elected members on a voluntary non-profit basis. The society organises slide shows, talks, hikes, camping and other family activities. It also runs the Kuala Selangor Nature Park and education programmes, among others, at the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia - the site for scientific and educational work in this country for close to 100 years - and Endau-Rompin State Park in Johor. The main role of MNS, however, is conservation. It researches key habitats with a team of full-time scientific officers and volunteer scientists and has organised expeditions into various expanses of Malaysia's jungles.

Liz Price

Liz Price - Liz, a native of England, has made Malaysia her home over the last few years. She has a deep interest in caves (technically, she should be called a speleologist) and is currently researching into the caves of Malaysia. She loves travelling and is only really happy being outdoors appreciating nature.

Surin

Surin Suksuwan - A multi-talented contributer who is active not only in the Malaysian conservation-circle, but also finds the time to write, and, run a down-to-earth second-hand CD shop in the heart of KL. Currently based in the northern State of Perlis, and in true WILDBORNEO.net spirit, often writes about the not-so-popular northern gems.

She contributes regularly to the publications of the Malaysian Nature Society and is often called on to contribute on scientific expeditions and other ornithological surveys. With Glenda on board, the number of features on Malaysian Birds will undoubtedly grow.

MalaysiaGIS.com

MalaysiaGIS.com - MalaysiaGIS.com is a locally-driven website targetting anyone who wants to produce, use, create and manage spatial information in Malaysia. This is one of the first few sites in Malaysia that aims to nurture more folk into using geographic information in Malaysia.
