Bird Nets in Langkawi
Marc de Faoite
It’s the time of year when birds flock in the padi fields, drawn by the nearly-ripened rice. It’s the time of year when young men and boys and cut lengths of bamboo poles and plant them in the ground. They span fine nets between the stakes, hoping to catch unsuspecting quail and water-hens as they fly in swooping circles, chasing insects through the air, above the nodding heads of grain-heavy rice.
Langkawi is home to more than 200 species of birds, some seasonal, like visiting retirees, most resident throughout the year. The birds are tempted by enticing rice, or by the host of insects, rodents, fish, lizards and even snakes that play their parts in the complicated eco-system of the padi fields. Some birds become entangled in the nets. The nets are equal opportunity traps – they ensnare any species, whether seasonal or not, whether common or rare. Almost all will die a slow death from heat, dehydration and exhaustion as they battle against the unforgiving mesh.
Closed system 'close season' proposal for Pulau Payar
LANGKAWI: The Department of Marine Park Malaysia (JTLM) plans to create a closed system for the 'close season' in the Pulau Payar Marine Park here to help balance the ecosystem of the island.
Director-General Sukarno Wagiman said the reason JTLM wanted to create a closed system was to allow a 'respite' for the coral reefs from recreational activities such as diving and snorkelling.
He said if the system was implemented next year (2014), the closure process will be observed for a minimum of once a month to allow the corals a 'rest' and thus keep the balance of the ecosystem.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE…
By Kamila Delart
Looking from afar, luxury resorts often seem to operate in a ‘parallel universe’, isolated from the reality experienced by ordinary people who live in surrounding kampongs. But first impressions tend to be misleading…
As John Donne said:’ No man is an island, entire of itself, but a tiny piece of a continent…’ And so, when Teluk Datai Resorts Sdn Bhd, the investment holding company that owns The Datai and surrounding land, learnt about the challenges experienced in one of the primary schools in direct neighborhood, they took initiative!
We knew since some time that the BERINGIN BEACH (Picture: TripAdvisor), the last decent public beach for the Kuah region, had been closed for the public.
Now it is official:
