Yesterday (7/2/2018), BSBCC was invited to do an awareness programme on sun bear in Sandakan Vision School. Approximately 80 students aged seven to nine years old were involved in this programme. The students and teachers got excited and were eager to learn more about the sun bears. The programme started with introduction session by Ms. Gloria, our Environmental Education Executive. Then Mdm. Sharon conducted an introduction to our sun bear mascot. Our sun bear mascot, Sunny was present to help the students understand better about physical characteristics of a sun bear. After that Ms. Melynda conducted a "Who Am I?" wildlife guessing game before Ms. Risnayati plays a short video about sun bears. We also set up display booth at the school. All of the students enjoyed their time learning about the environment and wildlife species through exhibitions. We hope that they can gain more knowledge on the importance of protecting the environment and our precious wildlife species. Thanks for inviting us!
It was the first time for BSBCC education team to organize and join an educational outreach programme at Tawau and Semporna area. Starting from 7th August until 12th August 2017, there were six schools (primary and secondary) targeted for this programme. This event was also accompanied by our partners from the Sabah Wildlife Department - Tawau district, HUTAN-Kinabatangan Orang Utan Conservation Programme (KOCP), Wildlife Rescue Unit (WRU) and Danau Girang Field Centre (DGFC). As part of our mission to promote the wildlife conservation by teaching young children about the beauty and value of our wildlife, various activities were conducted for the students such as exhibitions, wildlife talks, documentary screening, colouring activity and environmental games. Hopefully with this kind of awareness programme, young kids would be more eager to learn more about our wildlife and in future, contribute to any conservation work.
