SK Sungai Nangka Preschool
A school visit from SK Sungai Nangka Preschool, Beluran visited BSBCC on November 18th, 2017. The school children came together with their teachers and parents. They were given a short introduction on sun bears with our sun bear mascot and later they were brought to the observation platforms to see the bears roaming in the forest enclosure. The children, together with their parents and teachers, enjoyed their time at our Centre learning about sun bears and the environment. We were glad to share our knowledge on Sun Bears with them. We believe that environmental education can help in the efforts to save Sun Bears and their habitat for generations to come.
