We the undersigned would like you to seriously consider to abort the plan to build petrochemical and maritime industries at the Pulai River Estuary.
This is because the area has immense conservation value. Some of the important characteristics of the area are:
) Harbour one of the oldest virgin mangrove forest in the world
ii) A Ramsar Site - Wetlands of International Importance declared in 2003
iii) Harbour the most extensive seagrass bed in Malaysia
iv) The last stronghold habitat for the Spotted Seahorse (Hippocampus kuda) population in Malaysia
v) Evidence of dugong population
vi) Rich in fisheries, coral reef and other marine biodiversities
vii) Provide for the livelihood of traditional fishermen and indigenous Seletar folks.
The types of development proposed at this area are very damaging to the environment. We want the seahorse, dugong and the associated marine biodiversities at this area to be conserved for our future generations.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this letter.
