There are about 210 species and 71 families of plant can be found in ageing coastal forest of Jerejak which is over 4,000 years old. Some of this includes Dipterocarp, Mangrove, Revine Coastel and Weedy species.
The Dipterocarp are a family of 17 genera and approximately 500 species of mainly tropical lowland rainforest trees. Mostly found on hilly areas, Dipterocarp is a timber species that forms high proportion of emergent and main canopy strata of the forest. The forest is richly diversified and contains price timber such as Meranti, Mersawa and Keruing.
Mangrove Swamps (named after a of mangrove trees) are plenty in the forest wetland. The largest ones are located near the old prison buildings on the northern part of the island. The mangrove tree which is abundance here can tolerate brackish water and saltier coastal condition. Usually, the tree is surrounded by watery wilderness and provides natural habitat and breeding ground for organisms such as crabs and jellyfish.
Coastal plant community such as Mengkunyit and Bintagor also inhibits the Jerejak tropical forest. This plant act as a barrier between an interior plant and exposed beaches.

The White Bellied Sea Eagle
The White Bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaectus Leucogaster) is black in color and has a white spot underneath. The bird resting site is at the southern tip of the island. This is an ideal place for bird watching as this is also the perching area for many other bird species.

They are usually born with black fur but eventually turn a yellowish greenish, reddish brownish shade as they mature. Long tailed macaques are active during the day and arboreal (tree-living) animals. They tend to sleep on tree branches. So when you are exploring the jungle, look up on the tree and try to spot any of them 'hanging out'.

Their prey includes snails, grasshoppers, beetles, birds' eggs, crabs, fish and nestling birds. This tropical reptiles do not divest themselves of their tails like some others lizards. Once lost, the tail will never grow back.

Mangroves Snakes live around mangrove area such as trees or swamp. The snakes often hang around the tree branch or banks and will drop into the water whenever there is a provocation. However, this snake will fight back if cornered or caught. Others snakes species can be found in the Pulau Jerejak forest are the reticulated python.

Slowly devouring the remnants of the history of Jerejak is the very thing that was once cleared to make way for the development. The most ironic thing would be that another cycle would take place and development will soon take over again. Should we allow the past to remain dead and ignored? Or do we preserve what is left? Some live their lives based on the story of the island, others in ignorance. The question now, history or His story to keep?

The parking lots were prepared according to different areas.

Opportunities to Site:
Reduced Illegal Parking.

This proposal including conversion of current bus terminal into community center and suggest to locate a terminal with integrated public transport, such as bus and taxi strategically between the jetty and commuter train station.

Opportunities to Site:
Reduced number of vehicles on road
Ensured connectivity of transport within town area
Reduced air pollutions

Upgrades on Pedestrian Pathway and Road Traffic improved Users’ living experiences and qualities.

After identified the main and substitute roads on site, proposal on the new suggested route for heavy transportation from the port to Kuala Lumpur would essentially reduced the number of heavy vehicles on road within town areas.

Opportunities to Site:
Reduced traffic jam.
Reduced road maintenance.
Reduced sound pollution.
