MTC Photography Competition 2015: 15 June 2015 - 16 August 2015
With 61% of Malaysia’s land area of 32.98 million hectares currently covered in natural forest, it’s no wonder that our country’s rainforests are truly a treasure trove for nature lovers.
Believed to be one of the oldest and among the most biologically diverse in the world, the Malaysian forest is once again the focus of a photography competition organised by the Malaysian Timber Council (MTC), with the theme “Wonders of the Malaysian Forest”.
