It's that time of the year again, where our nation commemorates yet another year of independence. MNS has been around long before our declaration of independence, and have been fervently advocating for the fate of those who cannot voice their grievances - our forests, its naturals eco systems and all the wildlife, plants and people who live within and around it.
As Malaysia celebrates its 53rd year of independence, let us not forget those who have yet to reach independence. Our forests and wildlife which have been 'residents' to this country long before we turned up, have been fighting for the right to live in peace and harmony, away from poachers and loggers who threaten their very existence.
As MNS turns 70 this year, we invite you to pledge your support to Save Temengor, one of the oldest rainforest in the world. Let us celebrate this Merdeka by signing the signature pledge to get Temengor gazzetted as a protected area, if you have not yet signed the pledge. Please visit http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/savetemengor2010 and get your family and friends to do the same.
This year, our society turns 70! We would also like to invite you to join in the celebrations of the 70th Anniversary International Conference (8-9th October 2010) and Royal Charity Dinner, graced by Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Seri Paduka Baginda Raja Permaisuri Agong (10th October 2010) which will be held at Doubletree Hilton, Kuala Lumpur.
