A DETAILED Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study must be conducted before approval is given for activities such as extraction of natural resources such as timber and sand, said the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS).
“Similar studies should also be conducted for dump sites,” said MNS vice-president Henry Goh.
“The MNS is very concerned about the rampant deforestation activities being carried out nationwide.
“The latest report on Bukit Enggang is just one example. We are not against development but all plans must include an EIA study.”
