12 December 2014, Pulau Tioman – Reef Check Malaysia together with EcoKnights recently initiated a community survey on Pulau Tioman to assess the attitudes of the local communities towards the Tioman Marine Park.

This survey is part of its collaborative effort to assess and evaluate community resilience on the island.

Led by Education and Community Development expert, Amlir Ayat, together with Alvin Chelliah, a preliminary survey was conducted with the assistance of some local communities.
