“When the buying stops, the killing will stop too!”
Sun bears (Helarctos malayanus) live in the rainforest of South-East Asia. The global population of sun bears has declined by 30 percent in the last 30 years and continues to decline at this rate, with the illegal pet trade and poaching as two of the major threats.
Please watch and share to help save these precious sun bears from extinction!

Sun bears are opportunistic omnivores that consume a wide variety of food in the forest.
If something looks tasty, they will try it!!
BSBCC was invited to open up a booth at Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) for Tamu Sepilok from 7am to 3pm today.

Various activities were organized by RDC during the event, such as blood donation drive, recycling, environmental awareness activities, exhibitions by travel and education agencies, and craft stalls.

Another exhibition booth for the second Tamu Sepilok at RDC was also set up on 30th of June 2018, in conjunction of the World Environment Day 2018. The main theme for this event is #beatingplasticpollution. The event was also aimed to promote and raise awareness on the conservation of our nature with the main focus given on the seriousness of plastic pollution. Our booth organized some activities for the visitors such as colouring activity for the children, puzzle solving for both children and adult, and get photos taken at our photo booth.
BSBCC was privileged to receive help from the students of Maktab Rendah Sains MARA (MRSM) or MARA Junior Science College, Sandakan in maintenance works at our sun bear visiting area on 2nd May 2018. This activity was part of the students' requirement in doing charity works for their Civic Education courses. BSBCC also took this opportunity to educate the students on sun bears and the importance of protecting them, before their maintenance session started. A discussion between BSBCC and MRSM was also held today to discuss future collaborations on raising awareness on sun bears. Thanks to these 26 students of the Junior College – the handrails of our staircase leading towards the observation platform now look brand new!
