The compact guide measuring 8.5 x 4 inches fits neatly in the palm of your hand. Unfold it into a beautiful double-sided full colour visual map of what’s amazing about our mangrove forests! Interested to see the plant that produces salt? Or the crab that climbs trees? Now see how many plants and animals you can spot with this helpful guide!

A year in the making, this guide wouldn’t be possible without the generous contribution of time, knowledge and photographs from academicians, photographers and MNS members of which the Marine Group would like to extend heartfelt thanks to: J.W.H. Yong, Chew Ming Yee, Andy Paul, Loh Wan Yeng, Wong Wee Liem, Terence Ang, and H.Y. Leong.

Published in March 2014 by the Malaysian Nature Society’s Marine Group (Selangor Branch) and retailing for RM5, you can buy your copies from Membership Officer Wee Chin at the Malaysian Nature Society’s headquarters at JKR 641, Jalan Kelantan, Kuala Lumpur.
