Stop wildlife trafficking, SAM urges

Clean Malaysia  June 05, 2016

All Malaysians must work together to stop wildlife trafficking once and for all. If we don’t act decisively, many of the country’s most beloved and iconic species are doomed to die out.

That is the message of one of Malaysia’s best-known environmentalist groups, Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM). “If illegal wildlife trade is not curbed, then Malaysia’s 26 endangered animals (including the Malayan tiger, common otter and 11 species of bats) will go extinct,” the group, which was set up in 1977 with the aim of championing environmental justice, stresses in a statement.
