The Kuala Langat Utara Forest Reserve (HSKLU), which was gazzetted in the early 1920s, has shrunk by 97% from its original size. HSKLU is a peat swamp forest that has unique biodiversity and ecosystem functions that are important for the people around Banting and Kuala Langat. More importantly, this forest is also customary land for the Temuan community whose customs and livelihoods depend on this forest for more than 120 years. The loss of these forests is not only a violation of human rights in terms of land rights, but also the right to live in a clean and sae environment.
