Like most of the successful conservation projects working on saving endangered species in developing countries, the involvement and supports of all levels- from local, national, and all the way to international communities, governments, and NGOs are crucial keys to success. The formation of Sun Bear Conservation Trust, or SBCT, is motivated by several former-volunteers at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and BSBCC, including the Chairwomen Julie Trump who have helped and have up-close-and personal experiences with the sun bears at BSBCC. All of them were inspired by the facts that these bears are truly amazing animals but unfortunately being forgotten by conservation communities and general public. Sun Bear Conservation Trust therefore has a mission to save and help this forgotten bear species.
SBCT is now recruiting members in UK and welcome comment and ideals to make it grow stronger. Please feel free to contact Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be a member, interested in having copy of minutes of meeting or have any question.
