24th April 2017 - BSBCC welcomes a group visit from the students of SMK Sandakan, Sandakan. The students were given a a short briefing before they were brought to the observation platforms to see the sun bears. Most of the students from this group have not visited our Centre before. They were really excited to have a tour around our Centre to see sun bears. We were glad that the students are happy to learn more about sun bears and the environment. Through environmental education, we hope that the students will be more aware on the importance of protecting the environment and help us to spread the words. At BSBCC, we always welcome group visits to our Centre!
Today 22nd April 2017, we were visited by three groups from MRSM Sandakan, UMS (Conservation Biology Students) and Sk Rancangan Lubuh. The students were given presentation on the description of operations in BSBCC and information about sun bear. After a short briefing about sun bear and operation in BSBCC, the students and teachers then visited the observation platform to see the sun bears roaming in the forest enclosure. Awareness on the environment and wildlife is an issue which should be reasonably considered. Knowledge, skills and values as well as positive attitude towards the environment can be developed through environmental education.
We are very honored to have a visit from the US Ambassador, Kamala Shirin Lakhdir. 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. As per usual, the students were briefed with a short presentation on sun bears and later they did some activities such as bears observation and doing bear origami. Thank you for visiting us!
