FSC forest field trip, Perak (Malaysia), March 2003



Eco-Sys Action joined a field trip organized by WWF to visit an FSC-managed forest (see in the state of Perak in Northern Malaysia at the border with Thailand.


From a guided walk in the forest to a visit to a furniture factory, the trip encompassed the several stages of a tree from the forest to our home and workshops focused on how the FSC label helps forests to avoid being cut. After such a tour, you can never look at wooden furniture the same way again.




The visit also took us to an orang asli (a forest tribe) settlement which shows how cultures and the fragile balance of the forest and its inhabitants can disappear with the chainsaw.


Eco-Sys Action is a founding member of the China Forest Trade Network.
