The students were very happy and interactive during the talk and were keen to learn more about sun bears when they visit our booth. Many of the kids had never heard about sun bears, gibbons, otters or many of the other animals in our forest. Wildboars, civets, monitor lizards and pythons are more common within their area.
Our visits were welcomed by all schools and estate owners. It was a great opportunity for the BSBCC to visit them and the teams are looking forward to visiting these schools again. The following 5 schools visited were primary schools located in the coastal town of Lahad Datu, eastern part of Sabah.
