University Campus at Mt Trus Madi?

Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan had came out with an idea - calling the authorites concerned to set up branch campus of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) at the foot of Mt Trus Madi, the second highest mountain in Sabah (second to Mt Kinabalu) in a far flung area of the interior Keningau.

My Say:

I dare say not a bad idea afterall, as all the Universities now have disciplines dedicated to forest and the wilds that live within. Or is this another idea/proposal that will die a natural death as a proposal years ago to construct a road up Mt Kinabalu.

In my opinion, while it is not a bad idea, one question should be asked is where in Trus Madi? Directly at the foot of the mountain or somewhere in the near vicinity? One serious consideration is, I think, Trus Madi has it's own particular and unique biodiversity and building a campus there will certainly have a very severe impact.
