|The future happens here at the Kambatik Park|
I have answered the question that bugs and begs me.
What is your contribution to the future, especially its environment and climate? Is your contribution unique and of consequence? I am getting ready to handover an environment where nature thrives ecologically and able at the same time to sustain itself commercially. When all the mainstream media currently report about oil palm farming is the prevalence of monoculture cultivation and in its wake the destruction of whole forests, my experience has taught the contrary. At the park oil palm farming is carried out in an eco-friendly manner. It has passed the acid test of ecological diversity. It is my hope that the authorities will see the model experimented here as iconic of the contribution of smallholders in the state in their safe practice of oil palm cultivation. This model can make Sarawak into a destination with the broadest band of park lands and nature reserves in Malaysia, if only leaders have the political will.
