Penang Hills Watch

Penang Hills Watch is an initiative launched by Penang Forum on 31 October 2016 to allow the public to monitor hill clearings in Penang and report them to us for verification and mapping.

Reports of the latest cases are then periodically submitted to the authorities for their response and action.
