In this video, Rui Hoe is in Johor, Malaysia to show you what land reclamation works can do to the surrounding environment by comparing two rivers.
Land reclamation is the process of creating new land and in Johor, new land is created from the rivers and mangroves along the Straits of Johor. The simple terms, it involves filling an area with large amounts of rocks and sand until the desired height is reached.
But this has detrimental effects to the environment and the destruction can be seen clearly when we compare Sungai Danga with Sungai Melayu. Sungai Danga is currently under going land reclamation works at it’s mouth and Sungai Melayu is currently untouched.
Other than that, both these rivers are exceptionally similar. Both are streams of water running from inland Johor to the Straits of Johor. Both are located just beside each other.
So watch the video for yourself and if the environment matters to you, please share this out to your friends and family.
