The founder and CEO of BSBCC, Dr. Wong Siew Te delivered a short presentation on BSBCC's roles and efforts in sun bear conservation in sabah before taking the Ambassador to sun bear viewing at the observation platforms. After that, Ambassador Kamala Shirin Lakhdir also spent some time for story telling (The Wild Tree House of Borneo) to a group of students that visited us on the same day. The students were very happy to meet the Ambassador. On the same day of the Ambassador visit, BSBCC also welcomed another two more school visits from from SJK (C) Ming Chung and SK St. Mary Town, Sandakan.
