Forests of Perlis

Because it’s pretty…
Photos 2, 3 &4 show different lianas, creepers. Unfortunately the ordinary Malaysian doesn’t even know what these are, believe it or not. There was a photo of one in The Star newspaper the other day, calling it a strangler fig. Sigh. This country is one of the top biodiversity hotspots of the world, and the average Malaysian never sets foot inside  a primary forest. If the do, they don’t actually SEE anything, or understand what they see.

  1. How many people in other countries would be able to name flora and fauna outside their back door. I wouldn't be too good at it myself I'm afraid. It wasn't until I was a adult that I first took an interest in birds – thanks to hubby #1 and then #2. Also to Hans and Lottie Hass who were amongst the first I am sorry to admit that I would be pretty useless about naming anything but the most common trees.
