Interview with CEO of ECOMY on Birdwatching in Malaysia
“Malaysia has 873 species of birds, and out of 873 species, 91 are endemics! Which means they’re only found in our country or in the middle region. So people come around the world to see these special birds because they’re found nowhere else in the world.”—Andrew Sebastian
