Ulu Jelai Forest Reserve, Pahang: Tip-off for active logging

We have received a tip-off for active logging that recently began at the northern tip of Pahang, in Ulu Jelai Forest Reserve (May-Jul). The logging trail begins from the Kelantan border. We compared the satellite imagery submitted (Figure 1; time-lapse) against GLAD alerts layer for the same period (Figure 2), which confirmed the tip-off.
