Jadikan Kem Piasau Homestay dan Pusat Daya Tarikan Pelancongan ke Miri
Kita mengesa pihak kerajaan dan pihak berkuasa tempatan agar mengkaji semula hasrat untuk meroboh rumah yang masih utuh di kem Piasau kerana ianya boleh dijadikan taman hidupan liar yang bebas dari sebarang gangguan dan sentiasa terpelihara dari ancaman kepupusan.
Pihak kerajaan juga boleh manfaat rumah lama yang unik dan masih utuh itu sebagai tempat penginapan para pekerja di taman hidupan liar yang bergerak bebas dan menjadi salah satu daya tarikan pelancongan dari luar dan dalam negara untuk melawat Miri.
Kerjasama dengan pihak kerajaan dan mereka yang berkenaan untuk mengekalkan ciri-ciri unik rumah lama yang masih utuh di kem Piasau dan keindahan alam semulajadi disitu tetap terpelihara dari kemusnahan amat dihargai.

With an open concept of housing policy also well maintained grass in the compound of spacious house make Piasau camp residential abode of peaceful not only to humans but also the survival of the species in the natural environment.
Piasau camp area is also known as the abode of hornbills and there are also 41 species of birds, 25 species of mammals, 10 species of butterflies and five amphibian species that live in peace in the region.
Recently, as reported in the local newspaper that the local authorities plan to demolish 140 houses in the Piasau camp in stages and is divided into three phases, which are expected to end in December 2015.
Why the Local Authority want to demolish houses that are still intact in Piasau camp? The Local Authority should not demolish the house can still be used as place to stay of government officials and can also be used as a Wildlife Research Center in the area.
The cost to demolish 140 houses are still intact there is certainly a waste of taxpayers’ money because it can be used as a research center or become a site for homestay for tourists visiting Miri while enjoying the natural beauty of Piasau camp. Those who stay in homestay can feel the beauty of nature and also can see the life habitat that found in the area. Habitat is an ecological or environmental area that is inhabited by certain species of animals, plants, or other types of organisms.
With the house is still in good condition and can be refurbished for use by government officials and tourists who want to stay in a quiet place and avoid any interference of noise then the government should not let it empty and demolished.
This is where the most appropriate place for wildlife researchers and nature stay for study. The students who want to learn and know the way of life of wild species and natural environment also can do research in the area. The government is still able to maintain good environmental conditions although there is still some houses there that inhabited by government officials and tourists visiting on condition to always keep the environment clean and strictly prohibited to disturb, threaten as well as hunting life species found in the area.
Indirectly this can attract tourists from outside and inside the country came to see the beauty of the panorama and observe wildlife in its natural habitat that still exist there without having to go far because when they come to visit Miri they can stay in peaceful homestay and manageable from any interference.
It will also give a source of revenue to the government and the local population when many tourists come to visit the Forest Reserve Recreation Park for wildlife at Piasau camp.
