KL BAR MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN SEAHORSE DATA COLLECTION EXERCISE

By Wong Ee Lynn
Committee Member, Kuala Lumpur Bar Environmental Law Committee
The desire to conserve a species or an important habitat seldom comes from the perusal of academic literature alone. For a person to feel strongly enough to want to protect a specie, direct contact is often necessary. It was with these goals in mind, namely, to foster an awareness of Malaysia’s natural heritage in members of the KL Bar; to encourage KL Bar members to take an interest in conservation issues; and to instill a spirit of voluntarism in members of the KL Bar, that a seahorse data collection volunteering trip was organized to the Pulai River Estuary in Johor on 2nd – 3rd August 2008.
The seahorse and pipefish data collection and monitoring project is initiated, coordinated and run by Save Our Seahorses (SOS) Malaysia, a non-profit research and conservation organization, and the Malaysian Nature Society Marine Special Interest Group. The two organizations have committed themselves to long-term conse…

ANNUAL BAR-BENCH GET-TOGETHER ON 17.10.2008

Kuala Lumpur Bar takes pleasure in announcing that the Chief Justice Y.A.A. Tun Dato' Seri Abdul Hamid Bin Haji Mohamad has accepted our invitation to attend the aforesaid function. As it will be Tun’s last day of work as the Chief Justice, we hope that all will turn up to give Tun a warm sending off.

Additionally, please take the once-a-year opportunity to mingle with officers of the judiciary in an informal environment where legal issues are not welcomed! The venue this year is at the trendy upmarket Rick’s CafĂ© Casablanca at One-Bangsar and to correspond with that, the theme for the night is “Casablanca” or for the uninitiated, dressing is “the 40’s” era. There is also lined-up for the evening, a spectacular act from a face-change artiste, which has to be seen to be believed!

Places are limited so please get your passport to Casablanca as soon as possible- only one week to go!

Tickets at RM55.00 each are available at the KL Bar Secretariat (Tel: 26933585) and the Left Wing Bar Roo…
