FOREST MANAGEMENT AT ITS BEST

I just came across this brilliant community film that offers a positive step forward in the sticky issue of native customary rights versus political interests.

Totally impressive. It is projects like this that make The University of Life! For the community to participate in first understanding then constucting a topographically correct model of their ancestral for community management initiatives is amazing.Beating "red paint bureaucracy" for love of the land with intelligence!

Very well made doco. Colin has been busy - good on him! Unfortunately, only tree-huggers like us seem to appreciate what these down-to-earth folk are telling us. Perhaps we have no option but to subject maniacs like Taib Mahmud, Mahathir and all the sultans to compulsory 24/7 viewing of this and similar docos until they express genuine remorse for their erroneous worldviews and sell off their chainsaws and bulldozers as scrap metal.
