This is where I was last week. Lake Chini is not far from Lake Bera.
People have done some awful things to Lake Chini over the years, in the name of greed and ignorance. Fortunately, they have failed to ruin it altogether.
Noramly and I were there with a team of students and staff from the National University (UKM), under the leadership of a dedicated and passionate scientist, Dato’ Dr Prof. Mushrifah, working to return the lake to a ecologically natural and viable basis.
There is – of course – a dragon that lives under the water. He is called Sri Gumum. More about him another time.
It was wonderful to see that there are people who care about our wild places, and who do their best for our environment.
