In conjunction with the International Orangutan Day on August 19th, 2018, the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre (SOURC) organized a one-day awareness event. Many different interactive and educational activities were carried out during this event including informative talks, exhibitions, pongo fun fitness activities, henna drawing, children and family competitions and even a video show. This event aims to raise public awareness related to the conservation concerns that Orangutans are facing in the wild, including threats from illegal hunting and habitat destruction. Both the Orangutan and Sun Bear are keystone species within the environment where they are found, and are good examples of forest dependent species within Sabah. BSBCC wants to thank SOURC for inviting our team to participate at this event.
