Raptor Migration Watch at Taman Melawati Hill

NOTE: The disappointing decision made by MPAJ to approve IJM's development plans makes it more urgent for us to strengthen our resolve to save Taman Melawati Hill. Do not allow the devastation seen on nearby Amber Hill and 20Trees to be repeated on Phase 3 Hill, Taman Melawati. Come to the Raptor Watch to show you support to our fellow Ampang neighbors.

A Raptor Migration Watch will be held at Taman Melawati Hill, Taman Melawati, to observe the annual spring migration of raptors. The Migration Watch will be held in collaboration with the Asian Raptor Migration Survey, a project initiated and organised by the Asian Raptor Research & Conservation Network and other potential sponsors. This event will be led by Mike Chong a naturalist and ornithologist who studies wildlife, birds and raptor migration at Taman Melawati Hill.

Dates: 29 th March 2008

Time: from 10:00 AM

Things to bring: long sleeved shirt, hat, plenty of water, sun tan lotion and umbrella in case of sudden showers. Binoculars are very useful but we will try to get sponsors to provide binoculars and spotting scopes for people to watch the migrating raptors.

Venue: Taman Melawati Hill, Taman Melawati, Hulu Kelang

Ampang Hills development put on hold

Woo-hoo! The new state government has put on hold MAA's plan to build 194 bungalows on a landslide-prone stretch of Ampang hills. Similar project will be reviewed based on the government's "go-slow policy on hillside developments." Let's hope it becomes a "no-go policy on hillside developments." Full story here.

MPAJ approves MAA development just before new Selangor MB is sworn in

On 18th March 2008, residents in Taman Hijau and Ukay Heights received the official approval from MPAJ for MAA to develop 149 bungalow lots and 460 offices on one of the last remaining hills on Jalan Ulu Klang. This despite the last "invalid" hearing held between residents and MPAJ regarding the matter.

The approval letter was dated 18th March 2008 signed by Awang Mustapha B Md Yunus, Pengarah Perancang Bandar, MPAJ. While the approved plan was dated 17th March 2008. That very afternoon, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was sworn in as our new MB.

Sneaky, isn't it?
