Ecotourism @ Belum Temenggor

It’s World 🌍🗺️ Habitat Day today, every year the 1️⃣st Monday of October

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her recent volunteer participation with Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), a non-governmental non-profit organization (NGO) to learn about ecotourism 💚 @ Belum Temenggor🌳🌳, in particular hornbill conservation & habitat for its local communities ~ indigenous people aka orang asli 👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽in Malaysia 🇲🇾’s national language

IMG-20180917-WA0024.jpg

Since 2004, MNS aims to promoting hornbills conservation in Belum Temenggor Forest Complex 🌳🌳 (BTFC)(1️⃣of the oldest virgin rainforest on Earth, 130 million years old) & to enhancing public awareness of the importance of hornbills to the rainforests’🌳🌳 ecosystem 👍🏻🙌🏻

Malaysia 🇲🇾 is home 🏡 to 🔟 Malaysian hornbills & dubbed the ‘Hornbill Capital of the World🌍’ with its Perak state being recognized as the Land of Hornbills

Not only Borneo‼️ Yes ✅, in fact Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 with all  🔟 hornbill species comparatively 😃

This volunteer participation has recalled her memory of 1️⃣st hornbill feeding @ Pangkor Island early this year

 

BTFC 🌳🌳 aka Northern Peninsular Malaysia🇲🇾’s Natural Jewels 💎, the only remaining contiguous block to tropical rainforests 🌳🌳 which linking to Southern Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. Bang Lang National Park & Hala Bala Wildlife Sanctuary, also part of the Titiwangsa Range 💚

IMG_7369.JPG

Currently, only BTFC 🌳🌳 & the Greater Ulu Muda Forest Complex 🌳🌳 are on par for the hornbill diversity in Malaysia 🇲🇾, then together with the Southern Thailand 🇹🇭, all made up for the Hornbill Triangle (HoT)🔺

Hornbills get its name from its horn-like projection i.e. a casque on their beaks (Hmm…Not all hornbill species have them though) 😊

Hornbills are well known as the farmers 👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾 of the rainforests 🌳🌳

Ohh…Why❓⁉️

Hornbills fly long distances looking for fruits🍎🍏 & swallow fruits🍎🍏in whole. Hmm…Some fruits 🍎🍏 are with big seeds. As they spit out countless seeds, some seeds find a place to grow & become new 🆕 trees 🌳🌳

However, really dissappointed & sad 😧😔 that some of the hornbill species are experiencing critically endangered & vulnerable. In this connection, if lesser ⬇️ hornbills, many rainforest trees 🌳🌳 that depend on them to spread their seeds may disappear from the rainforest 🌳🌳eventually

Why❓⁉️ Why❓⁉️Why❓⁉️

Some of the main reasons are destruction/ loss of the hornbills’ habitats & degradation due to deforestation (Photo 📸 below captured from BRAINS Summit 2018), fragmentation of rainforests 🌳🌳, illegal logging (Photo 📸 below captured by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during her volunteer trip), poaching & hunting, conversion to agriculture e.g. oil palm plantations, over-development etc. 😧😔

IMG_8151.jpg

IMG_8161.JPG

As the rainforests 🌳🌳disappear, so does indigenous peoples’👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽culture too 😧😔 as their living style very much depended on the rainforests 🌳🌳 for medicine, shelter, food, other necessities etc. They are not known to take more than what they need as this would be seen as a transgression of the rainforest 🌳🌳 & would bring curses to their people. So, the destruction of their prime resource is resulting in the destruction of their traditional ways of life 😧😔

IMG_7363.JPG

You may not aware that BTFC 🌳🌳consists of 2️⃣ big parts,

  1. Temengor Forest Reserve ~ the southern part of BTFC is largely a production forest 🌳🌳
  2. Royal Belum State Park ~ the northern part, a protected area🌳🌳

MNS has been working hard for years to get the whole BTFC a protected area 🌳🌳 with its ecotourism 💚 efforts 👍🏻🙌🏻💪🏻 Hope they will achieve success very soon

“MY forest 🌳 , MY wildlife, MY responsibility

Curious 🤔 about what SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has participated & learnt during her 4️⃣D3️⃣N volunteering with MNS❓⁉️

She has captured an interview clip 📹🎥 with Mr Balu, the Head of Conservation with MNS ~ “Hornbill Conservation Effort by MNS

MY forest is a high⬆️-impact partnership, as it looks at Malaysia🇲🇾’s natural 💚 heritage ~ rainforests 🌳🌳 & how non-state actors ~ non-governmental organisations, civil societies, local communities, the private sector & the public – can inform & change policies towards better rainforest governance.  Under this 5️⃣-year project (2017-2021), MNS is tasked with building the capacity of non-state actors from all around Malaysia 🇲🇾 to engage more effectively with the government in protecting Malaysia🇲🇾’s rainforests 🌳🌳

 

She had great interactions with the orang asli kids 👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽 & adults🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽about nature awareness, art🎨🖍activities, sumpit, balloons🎈🎈, survey questionnaires❓❓etc. by using simple Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Melayu 👌🏻✌🏻👍🏻

She got inspired by the orang asli hornbill guardians’ passion 💗 towards hornbills conservation 👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 Truly motivated with the positivity 🙏🏻👆🏻Really wish local communities here with skills gained from ecotourism efforts by MNS to improving their overall living lifestyle & being happy self sufficient 👍🏻💪🏻🙌🏻

  • 1️⃣ cube as her travel 🎒light companion of course‼️ Yes✅, above are her toiletries now

Not bad right❓⁉️

Next, let’s reading 📖 on SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 sharing about her personal care 🛁🚿 user experience with it,

Photo 11-03-2018, 4 53 38 PM.jpg

She 💗 the smell, not too fragrant👍🏻

 Oral 👄 care

Really convenient❗️No need ❌ to bring toothpaste / sometimes she forgot 😌 to refill a new tooth paste to her travel toiletries bag😜

Tooth brushing with it helps to reduce ⬇️ bad breath, gums protection & healthy teeth 👄👍🏻

Photo 11-03-2018, 4 57 55 PM.jpg

Hmm…Personally, she is not used to having it (soap) as toothpaste. She still prefers the mint 🌱taste after her usual tooth brushing though☺️

For travel 🎒light purposes, of course she can tolerance 🆗 with her personal tooth brushing preference then 😀

✅ Skin care

She uses it as daily facial cleansing & occasionally makeup removal, including lips👄

It does cleanse, moisture, whiten & help to soothe & reduce acne especially forehead & T-zone😊

Photo 11-03-2018, 4 56 50 PM.jpg

She suggests to have the thick soap foam covered whole face during facial cleansing, then stay for about 5️⃣mins to enjoy it as facial mask before rinse off with water 💦💧

This helps to restore skin resilience, plumpness & smoothness😍

Also the tea 🍃polyphenols extracted from Sapindus 🌰 ables to act as an astringent to minimise pores, disinfect, sterilise & prevent skin from aging😁

Photo 11-03-2018, 4 59 56 PM.jpg

The ferulic acid from Sapindus 🌰 able to enhance delicate, shiny & elastic skin texture.

While the citric acid in Sapindus 🌰 helps to remove accumulated keratin on the outer layer of skin, accelerate skin healing, reduces acne, dark spots, wrinkles, dry skin & rough skin problems😍👍🏻

✅ Hair 👩🏻 care

The coconut 🌴🥥 oil produces a large amount of white ⚪️ foams that can deeply cleanse & keep hair & skin moisture🙂

Photo 11-03-2018, 7 02 19 PM.jpg

Shampooing with it helps for hair fall & dandruff control. After use it for almost 2️⃣ weeks, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 noted her dandruff & scalp itching does reduce ⬇️

✅ Body care

This soap 💎 with its natural organic ingredients aims to soothes & nourishes skin. Yeah‼️ For skin protection👆🏻👍🏻

Photo 11-03-2018, 4 58 35 PM.jpg

Frankly, she rarely use soap, however shower crème for her daily shower 🛁🚿 for quite a long time

However, her soap usage recalls her childhood 👶🏻🧒🏻👧🏻where her late grandma 👵🏻 was a soap lover & always showered 🚿her with soap

She prefers to get the thick soap foam, then transfers to her yellow bathery exfoliating bath sponge to enjoy her shower 🛁🚿 with it

✅ Feminine hygiene care

Why not❓⁉️

Since its with natural ingredients of antibacterial, anti-itching, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant free radical scavenging, anti-clotting effect, mild moisturising skin & able to reduce the unfavourable menstrual odor☺️

During showering🛁🚿, just apply the soap on palm 🤲🏻, massage gently on the female vaginal area & then rinse thoroughly💦💧

Photo 11-03-2018, 4 55 25 PM.jpg

She was told for long term use, it helps to safeguard females from the vaginal skin yeast disease👍🏻

This soap can heal Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection & that’s the whole reason this Taiwan 🇹🇼 manufactured soap is currently selling in Malaysia 🇲🇾 via import from Taiwan 🇹🇼 by the founder of CM3 Premium Distribution, Mr Carlos Yong 👨🏻‍💼

Hmm…Why not give it a try❓⁉️

It has high socio-economic value for fisheries 🐟🐟 especially mudskippers aka ikan belacak in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾national language😀

Photo 28-01-2018, 11 50 06 AM.jpg

The national park officers 👩🏻‍💼👨🏻‍💼shared about the breeding story of mudskippers🐟. Apparently the male 🚹🐟 mudskippers need to build a mud house 🏠 (refer photo 📸 below) to attract the female 🚺🐟mudskippers. Ha…Ha…Interesting facts learnt😅😂🤣
