We welcomed the invitation from KLK Sawit Nusantara Berhad to participate in their environmental outreach programme in the Sugut area of Malaysia's eastern Sabah, in the division of Sandakan. Both the Sabah Wildlife Department (Sandakan division) and the Sabah Forestry Department (Sugut Conservation Area) joined the programme. We went to four primary schools: SK Sungai-Sungai, SK Keniogan, SK Obah, and Humana School (EC2). Several activities, including talks on the history and advantages of palm oil, an overview of the protected wildlife in Sabah, mask colouring contests, sun bear talk and wildlife exhibitions, have been held over the past three days with the goal of increasing public awareness about the protection of our nature.
Tabika KEMAS Kompleks Polis Sandakan (27th September 2023) Visit to BSBCC - Cheeky, curious, energetic and adorable!
Today we received a school visit from SMK Sandakan, with 60 students and 1 teacher. Students were given exposure to how important sun bears are in the forest and unique things about them.
Even though the weather is very hot today, students still got a chance to see the sun bears roaming in the forest enclosure from both observation platforms.
We hope the students are having a great time here and have gained more new knowledge about sun bears, as well as helping us spread awareness to their friends and family. Thank you and see you guys again!
Today we received a group visit from students from Pra Sekolah SK Jaya Baru, Kinabatangan. They were introduced to the eight bear species and Sun Bear’s fun facts before they were brought to the observation platforms to see the bears roaming in the forest enclosure.
