We would like to say thank you to SK St. Monica, Sandakan for the visit today! As usual, the group was given Sun Bear talk and Quiz by Environmental Education Officer before going to the observation platform to observe our rescued bears.
They were happy to see the rescued bears around the forest enclosures. We hope they had a great time here and gained some new knowledge about Sun Bears, while helping us to spread awareness by sharing experiences with their friends and family! Once again, thanks for coming to visit us, and your kind donation and souvenir!
It’s been a busy week for us this week as we have received big group visits 2 days in a row after our outreach programme to SK. Nunuyan last Monday. These group visits are Girl Guides group, SK. Simpangan group and SMK Telupid group.
The Girl Guides group consisted of 223 pax that were not only from Malaysia but also from Philipines, Sri Langka, Singapore, Cambodia and Maldives. SK. Simpangan and SMK Telupid groups consisted of 53 and 34 pax of students and teachers, respectively.
The groups are given a short briefing about our Centre, followed by a guided tour to the observation platform to observe the rescued sun bears in their natural forest enclosures.
We are honoured to receive these group visits as they travelled from distant locations just to experience the nature and wildlife. We are also glad that we can spread the word about our efforts to save sunbears and raise their awareness about nature and wildlife conservation. We hope they had a great time here and gained new knowledge about sun bears and their habitat. Thank you!

As part of our efforts to raise public awareness about sun bear conservation, the BSBCC Environmental Education Unit reached out to the children of Baptist Church Kindergarten (Main Branch) on August 25th, 2022. The programme includes an interactive talk about sun bears with Sunny the Sun Bear as the model, followed by sun bear mask colouring session.
The programme continued on August 26th, 2022, when the children visited us at BSBCC. We brought them to the observation platform to let them see the real sun bears in the natural forest enclosures. Each of them is given a worksheet activity, and they need to observe and spot the animals in the forest other than sun bears.
We hope they are enjoying the visit and learning more about the wildlife, especially the sun bears.
