PRU Sarawak: Conservationist want whole forest for orang utan?


Sarawak Orangutans Found Only In Three Specific Habitats

SIBU, March 28 (Bernama) -- The Sarawak Orang Utan are only found in three specific habitats and not all over the state jungles, Dr.Penguang Manggil, permanent secretary to the Ministry of Environment and Public Health said.

The Orang Utan in Sarawak were only found in the Lantjak Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary, the Batang Ai National Park and the Sebuyau National Park, he said to correct the misconception that they existed everywhere.

He said the misconception had caused westerners to believe that the animals were adversely affected by economic development, namely the creation of more oil palm plantations statewide.

In addition, the government had placed these animals under its "Totally Protected Animal" whereby offenders could be fined RM30,000 and jailed for two years for hunting them," he told a candlelight news conference here last night after the Earth Hour event here Saturday night.

Penguang said there were an estimated 2,500 to 3,000 Orang Utan living in the three habitats, of which the Lantjak Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary and the Batang Ai National Park share common borders with the Kalimantan Indonesia.

    Conservation need to be balanced with development.

    The conservation demands of these International NGOs are ridiculous.

    They come to Sarawak for one week and they decided there and there.

    If their NGOs, why are they entering into Malaysian politics and trying to oust teh Government?

    They are foreign agents with ulterior motives and the opposition are supporting them.

    Melihat kepada apa yang ada di Pulau Pinang dan Selangor, tidak ada jaminan kalau PR pegang Sarawak nasib orang utan akan jadi lebih baik dari sekarang? Adalah tidak masuk akal kalau PR tidak akan sentuh hutan-hutan dara yang mengiurkan? Betulkan?

    Ini bukan telahan kosong tetapi terbukti apabila kerajaan PR gagal mengekalkan status quo taburan penduduk India dan Melayu Pulau Pinang apabila diasak oleh tuntutan para kapitalis. Kalau manusia dilayani seumpama itu macam mana pula para haiwan?

    Justeru, kalau itulah polisi pentadbiran PR bagaimana mengharapkan mereka mengekalkan status demografi orang utan? Tidakkah nanti atas desakan kapitalis licin semua hutan-hutan dara di liwat sebagaimana pasir di rogol dan di liwat di Selangor?
