KOTA KINABALU: Some 500 villagers staged a peaceful protest against some conservationists’ campaign to stop the construction of a bridge across the Kinabatangan river.

The villagers want the authorities to go ahead with building the bridge from Sukau II to Jalan Morisem. However, the conservationists said the project in the eco-sensitive Kinabatangan area, which is part of the Heart of Borneo conservation area, could affect wildlife’s movement. The project involves Lot 3 of the Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary.
