Tasik Kenyir’s ambience is magical all day and night. Hidden in the misty dawn, shimmering blue-hued lake reflecting the midday skyline, and later glimmering in the rusty light of dusk. The scene is always glorious. The smell of the forest is sweet. The voices is harmonious. Early morning bird songs break the silence of the valley. An army of bees buzz among beautiful flowers. As the morning sun rises, butterflies spread their wings and slowly glide around flowering trees. Geckos come out of hiding to bask on rocks, absorbing the soothing warm sunlight. Squirrels are busy finding fruits. Midday is the siesta time for all forest animals. Nothing moves. A few hours before the sun sets, all animals are busy finding food. It’s pitch black at night. Pairs of eyes pop out of the forest. Could it be wild boars? Civets? Tigers? Our thoughts of ghosts and supernatural spirits come flooding into our minds. The lake, forest, animals and plants are our heritage held in trust for our future generations to learn about, enjoy and respect the scarce natural resources in Malaysia. This book provides a glimpse of the present biodiversity at Tasik Kenyir. Large mammals are at the brink of extinction and perhaps out last biodiversity stronghold in Terengganu is Tasik Kenyir. Enjoy it while it lasts.
