BSBCC has taught me a lot of things. In this place I have been taught and been exposed to the awareness and the importance of wild animals in their natural habitat. They are not supposed to be kept, hunted or killed.
I’m so thankful to meet Mr Wong, the great man that risked his life in rescuing wild animals.
Wong Siew Te founded the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre in 2008 and is the drive behind the project.
In this entry I would like to share about my experience when I was at BSBCC. Enjoy your reading!
Wong Siew Te, CEO & Founder of BSBCC
I hope with the establishment of BSBCC, that people will become more aware about the importance of this animal on Earth. Now, I would like to share about the pleasure of working at BSBCC!
On our first week we were briefed about so many things. We were still curious about the sun bears and their own history which lead us to ask a lot of questions to the staffs of BSBCC, especially the Bear Keepers.
For second feeding we prepared boiled eggs, vegetables and fruits. As an opportunistic omnivore, they eat food like watermelon, papaya, honey dew, banana, salak, pineapple, coconut, sugar cane, corn and sweet potato.
After we finished with our duty, we would follow the keepers to feed the indoor and outdoor bears.
This was our activity on the second day of internship. We collected decayed logs, dried leaves and banana leaves. We even constructed new hammocks for them!
