The BSBCC education team visited 3 district within one week which is Smk Beluran on 7th April 2016, SK Gabungan and SMK St.Mary Sandakan, SMK Telupid in Telupid, Sabah on the 14,15 and 16 April 2016.
Teachers, students and parents were very welcoming to the EE team which comprised of several organizations including BSBCC, HUTAN-Kinabatangan Orangutan Conservation Programme (HUTAN-KOCP) and Sabah Wildlife Department.
Awareness of 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. To create a generation that is more environmentally aware, students should be given information on the importance of preserving and conserving the environment.
We were very happy to have the chance to share our knowledge and experience of working with Sun Bears to the students! All of the students enjoyed their time learning about the environment and wildlife species from the talk, exhibitions and educational activities. We hope that they can gain more knowledge on the importance of protecting the environment and our precious wildlife species.
