大馬自然之友敦促彭亨州政府迅速採取行動,保護文冬揚達柏克的自然環境,避免該地區遭受任何形式活動的破壞。

除了森林採伐問題,河水質量應被關注。該區的河流很大的可能因農業化學和養魚塘不妥當的廢水處理而導致污染。

近日,彭亨森林局証實烏魯澄本洛(Ulu Chemperoh)2公頃大的森林保留區造不法單位轉換為農業用途。

大馬自然之友希望有關當局採取行動,實施嚴懲以對付不法單位,有效制止不法活動,避免重蹈覆轍。

大馬自然之友相信剝削土地和森林轉換為農業用途將引發水土流失,而農業化學將污染該區自然環境。

養魚塘將廢水排入附近的河流將使該區的情況惡化,這不僅污染河水,導致魚種死亡或滅絕,更危及依賴河水自然為生的家庭生機。

因此,大馬自然之友希望州政府、有關當局和機構採取頻密監督行動,確保相關活動和單位不會破壞該區的自然環境。

任何破環環境的發展計劃應制止,以確保揚達柏克生態系統不受破壞,讓後代享有自然環境。

Janda Baik’s Natural Environment Must be Protected

Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) urges the Pahang government to take prompt action to protect the natural environment of Janda Baik near Bentong here so as not to continue to be threatened by any form of activity in the area.

In addition to the problem of deforestation, serious attention should also be given to the quality of river water. We are concerned that the river may potentially be polluted in the near future due to application of agro-chemicals and disposal of effluents from fish culture ponds located here.

Recently the Pahang Forestry Department had detected encroachment of two hectares of land in Ulu Chemperoh Forest Reserve by irresponsible parties. The forest area has been converted for agriculture purposes.

SAM hopes that stern action will be taken and heavier penalties will be imposed on the irresponsible parties so that this kind of offence can be effectively controlled and does not recur.

SAM believes that if encroachment and conversion of the forest continues for agriculture purposes, it will trigger soil erosion and pollution from agrochemical residue in the area.

The situation here would become worse if the existing fish farming projects also contributes to the problem by channelling waste effluents from the pond into the nearby river. It will not only pollute the river water but also cause death and extinction of fish and hence jeopardize the livelihood of families who depend on the river as their source of income.

Thus SAM hopes the state government, relevant departments and agencies conduct frequent and continuous monitoring to ensure that the natural environment here is not destroyed by any activity and party.

Any type of development projects that may impact the environment should not be allowed here so that the ecosystem function and splendour of Janda Baik is not jeopardised and left pristine to be enjoyed by future generations.
