Greeting from Malaysia! We are from Malaysia. Malaysia is very beautiful with its cascading waterfalls, man-made lakes, white sandy beaches, amazing islands and lush greeneries jungles.
Our school is located far from the beach but it is near Taman Negara National Park and Lake Kenyir. Lake Kenyir is rated as the biggest man made lake in South East Asia. We also have our own environmental project that we want do do as part of Sandwatch, it is called, Save Our River (click on the link to learn more about the project) We want to help keep our river free from pollution. A palm oil nearby disposes its wastes into the water. As a result, the crystal clear water turns to black in colour. It is hard to find fish there because the river is polluted and unsafe for aquatic creatures. We want to help the river breathes again and runs free.
That's our mission, it is not impossible but it needs a lot of effort. The Sandwatch Project is amazing for young researchers like all of us since it provides us with information and guidance for our project. So, participating in the Sandwatch project is a good idea for us and other young researchers. Wish us luck! - Click here to learn more!
