LEAF Malaysia visit the Matang Mangrove Forest

38 members of WWF-Malaysia's Youth Empowerment for Sustainable Consumption and Production (YESCP) Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) programme visited the breathtaking Matang Mangrove Forest in Kuala Sepetang, Perak. The 40,000 hectare site was decreed as a Permanent Forest Reserve in 1906 and is renowned as one of the best managed mangrove forests in the world. 
After a stroll along the board-walk admiring the buttress, aerial and stilt roots came a trip to nearby charcoal factories to observe traditional methods for producing charcoal using wood sustainably harvested from Matang. For more photos please follow this link.
