Pulau Talang-Talang Kecil National Park, Sarawak where the Turtle Conservation station is located.
Kathy (Kak Nor) with the young lady park rangers at the Ramsar Centre, Tasek Bera.
The Centre conducts talks to school children and visitors about Tasek Bera and its importance to environment. It provides an insight into the lives of Semelai tribe in this area.

It's rare to find a rasau/pandanus plant bearing fruit. It looks like buah cempedak but it cannot be consumed. Found this while touring the lake by guide, Ari.
Tasek Bera supports pockets of Rasau plants. The Semelai people cut the leaves turning them into mats, bags, baskets, purses with intricate weaving. Almost a dying art, but his activity helps to curb the wild growth of the plants in the lake.
The orang asli or the aborigines have lived around the lake for generation. This is a young family of Semelai waiting for the husband to come and pick them up at the village jetty. They still live in the village but have become well-to-do working on their rubber plots, granted generously by the state government.
Nature's way of controlling the spread of wild pandanus or rasau plants in the lake. During dry season, the sun creates fire burning the rasau. Imagine fire bellowing up on the lake. Must be fascinating!
