1 Apr (Mon): Talk on "Lessons from Chek Jawa" by N. Sivasothi

What really happened at Chek Jawa before reclamation was deferred? What lessons were learnt and how do these lessons guide current conservation efforts?
With news of deferment of reclamation, there was tremendous public pressure to visit Chek Jawa. Efforts were redoubled to train guides so that everyone could have a chance to see their Chek Jawa. Here, N. Sivasothi is briefing NParks staff. Priscilla the Pig, as usual, was present at the occasion.
Hear from N. Sivasothi's personal experience leading some of the efforts for Chek Jawa before reclamation was deferred at this free talk.
