Blue Water Volunteers (BWV) are proud to present:

"Life on the Edge: the Living Shores of Singapore"
By Ria Tan of WildSingapore.

Saturday 5th March 2005
3.00pm at the library@Orchard,

The Programme Zone, Ngee Ann City #05-22/26 Tower B

All are welcome. Do inform Dionne so she knows you are coming, at mattebluewhite@yahoo.com.sg.

Join Ria on a (slightly) wet and wild journey through the inter-tidal shores of Singapore. Expect lots of dazzling photographs, funny anecdotes and things to make you go 'Wow!', as Ria proves that you definitely need not swim or dive to explore the shores of Singapore.

Thanks to Ngoh Seh Suan for the photo.

Malaysian PM decries environmental damage

Category : malaysia

'Malaysia's PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (a.k.a. "Pak Lah") shocked by land degradation around a controversial agricultural park declared a series of measures to save and protect the countryŐs environment that he said was the nationŐs heritage.'

"Sadly, we don't seem to appreciate the vast natural resources, rivers, beaches, highlands and our rich wildlife which is amongst the best in the world.

"We fell our trees, pollute our beaches and rivers, and contaminate the very source of clean water we need for drinking."

The proposed changes to EIA rules would cover the marina project in Pulau Tioman.

See "Pak Lah shocked!" on Screenshots which has followed the controversy since it broke on Utusan Malaysia.
