Transparency International-Malaysia launches website to reduce illegal logging
Transparency International-Malaysia (TI-M) has launched an innovative and user-friendly website for Malaysians to try and reduce illegal logging cases. The website allows people to monitor rainforests and alert the authorities when they notice suspicious activities.
According to Executive Director Alan Kirupakaran, co-operation with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and using simple tools like Google Earth will allow the public to become active participants in protecting the forests.
