Amidst larger issues like climate change, the Cloud Forest of Mount Brinchang is facing attacks from within its environment by the very people living under its shelter. Excessive use of pesticides by farmers pollute its microclimate and water reserves, while expansion into the forest for commercial purposes damages its ecological structure. If this destruction continues, the 200-million-year-old Cloud Forest will soon see its end -- and with it, its protection of Cameron Highlands as a whole.
