This country's wealth was built largely on the abundant natural resources Malaysia stores - timber and tin, our rich coastline for ports and fishing.
Our country continues to depend on our abundant natural resources to support our economy. Without the most basic building blocks such as water and biodiversity provided by places like Taman Negeri Selangor we could not enjoy our current lifestyles and grand prosperity.
So this Merdeka Day, remember to say 'Thank you' to the unsung heroes of Malaysia - the forests, rivers, swamps and seas, the plants, animals and insects - the rich natural heritage that makes this country so beautiful and so plentiful!
Thanks Taman Negeri Selangor. Thank you Malaysia's natural environment!
