A nature photography talk organised by Click! Magazine and the Malaysian Nature Society as part of a series of activities that coincided with the “Living with Nature” Sony Nature Photography Contest was held at Sony Style KLCC (November 19, 2005).
Professional photographer Allan Wong started off the event with his talk and slide show presentation about the inhabitants and breathtaking underwater landscapes of Sipadan, Redang, Layang-Layang, and Mataking Islands . Entertaining stories about the subjects in his photos captivated the audience.
Next up was T.C. Lim, MNS Marine Group Coordinator. His educational yet light-hearted presentation highlighted the society’s conservation efforts and projects including the Belum-Temengor forests, Endau-Rompin, the Boh Centre in Cameron Highlands , and Kuala Selangor Nature Park . He rounded off his session with a special look at our Marine Parks and what needs to be done to preserve their beauty. All in all, I thought that it was a fruitful experience and I look forward to attending more of such events in the future.
