To World Leaders,

I urge you to support a Global Deal for Nature that safeguards the Earth, protecting at least 50% of our lands and oceans. Scientists say this bold target is needed to prevent the extinction crisis, halt runaway climate change, feed the world, and ensure a healthy planet for future generations. The agreement must ensure our living planet is sustainably managed; must have the active support of indigenous peoples; and must address the needs of human development. 

Deforestation in Malaysia is a COMPLEX problem.
The solution, however, is SIMPLE.

1. Ban all logging activities in Malaysia
We suggest a moratorium on all logging activities, including land-clearing, throughout Malaysia for at least 10 years to allow our forests to recover;

2. Reuse existing non-forest land in Malaysia
Instead of clearing forested land, reuse existing non-forest lands for plantations, agriculture, and other development;

3. Re-gazette all existing forest reserves as national or state parks
Trees in existing forest reserves are NOT protected but RESERVED to be used at a later time. We need to re-gazette forest reserves as state and national parks that are protected by law so that the biodiversity and wildlife are conserved.

4. Reform laws associated with the exploitation of natural resources and the protection of the natural environment.
Existing laws that govern the use of natural resources and outline protections for the natural environment are often inadequate or have loopholes that are easily EXPLOITED.
