On 13th -14th May 2018, BSBCC participated in the Orangutan Awareness Program conducted at IOI Syarimo Plantation, Kinabatangan. The program was organized by Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and IOI Plantation's Sustainability team. Other organizations involved included the Wildlife Rescue Unit and HUTAN-KOCP. The targeted participants were school-youths, workers, and communities in the area.
The program included presentations from every organization, quizzes, a colouring contest for the students and educational booths. We were delighted to see that the participants really enjoyed the program and showed their eagerness to know more about wildlife. They asked a lot of questions regarding wildlife and really enjoyed visiting the booths. Our huge thanks to IOI Syarimo group administration, workers and villagers for the support and help during the program. Our team hopes that participants gained benefits and knowledge from the program, especially on the importance of conserving wildlife in their area and Sabah as a whole.
