Tempurung Cave Cleanup - Earth Day 2000

In the days when the Malaysian Nature Society had active cave groups in Perak and Selangor, they used to remember Earth Day by cleaning up places such as caves.

On Earth Day 2000, Saturday April 22 was the 30th Anniversary of Earth Day. On the following day, which was Easter Sunday, a group of about 20 cavers and volunteers gathered at Gua Tempurung in Perak to clean the cave.

We split up into 3 teams. On group followed the streamway, another the walkway, and the third concentrated on the steeper parts. Some of the Selangor Group members had brought ropes and SRT gear in order to reach rubbish in deep crevices.
