Preserve Koay Jetty & Mangrove in Penang, Malaysia sign now

We the undersigned hereby appeal to Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon, Penang State Chief Minister to preserve the culturally endangered Koay Jetty and Mangrove ecosystem and to ensure the proposed development takes place without sacrificing both the Koay Jetty, embodies the only surviving living community of descendant of the Chinese Muslim Hui minority and the mangrove ecosystem, which is home to more than 30 species of birds including Northern migrants of which are protected under the Malaysian Wildlife Act.

We further appeal to the good offices of Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi,Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Rais Yatim, Minister of Art,Culture and Heritage,Datuk Dr Leo Michael Toyad, Minister of Tourism and, DatukSri Adenan Satem,Minister of Natural Resources and Environment for assistance in conserving the Koay Jetty and conserving the mangrove ecosystem at the Koay Jetty.

We are not opposed to development in the area but feel very strongly that a more creative planning approach can achieve the development objective without sacrificing either the Koay Jetty or the mangrove ecosystem.

The Koay Jetty together with the mangrove ecosystem is both culturally and environmentally important in showcasing the culture and biodiversity of a historical city like George Town.

The efforts initiated by the Baiqi Koay Cultural Revitalization Ad Hoc Joint Committee, Malaysian Chinese Muslim Association, Penang Heritage Trust and Malaysian Nature Society in highlighting the cultural and environmental significance of this inner-city enclave of George Town has created greater public appreciation and awareness of the importance of such conservation efforts.

We thereby appeal to the relevant approval authorities to insert, a clause stating that the Koay Jetty and the mangrove ecosystem be preserved and incorporated into the development of the area, so as to leave a legacy for the future generations of Penang and Malaysia.
