Mother Nature - Our Forest

I watched the film 'Avatar' and it gives me imagination and amusement what human beings can do to civilization. It is a science fiction film and the film is set in the year 2154, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on Pandora, a lush moon of gas giant in the Apha Centaur star system. The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na'vi - a humanoid species indigenous of Pandora. The film's title refer to the genetically engineered Na'vi and human hybrid bodies used by several human characters to interact with the natives of Pandora.
In the film, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to the planet, Pandora. There he learns of greedy coporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an 'Avatar' identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless extermination tactics, forcing the solier to take a stand and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.
Okay, back to reality on our present day earth, we can still enjoy the fresh air and our natural environment given to us by mother nature until such a time when we will fully depend on technology for survival and other planets for colonization. Possible? Yes, part of it is already happening and the race is on. Human induced problems.
The photos here are of the Lambir hills National Park which is located along the Miri-Bintulu some 30km south of Miri city. It covers of about 6,952 hectares and the forest consists a variety of trees, flora and fauna shrubs. It's a recreational, educational ground for nature lovers and for children to understand, appreciate nature and the importance of our eco system on this earth. This forest reserve is handled by Sarawak Forest Department and they charged an entry fee(adult) RM10.00. I personally think it should be waived for the benefit of the locals. There are also accommodation, forest lodge and other amenities for tourists who want to spend the night there.

Tranquility and beauty of nature.
