Today BSBCC's Education Team organized Sandakan Wildlife Conservation Awareness and Education Programme (Series 1) 2018 for Sandakan district together with our partners from HUTAN - Kinabatangan Orang Utan Conservation Programme (KOCP), REEF guardian, Wildlife Rescue Unit and Sandakan Borneo Bird Club. Today the school we visited was SK Batu Putih. Various activities were held during this programme such as talks, games, video show and colouring activity. Each participating organization also set up educational booth for the students and teachers to visit. Thank you to our partners from different organization for joining us to be part of the programme and we are looking forward to more programmes in the future and lastly, huge thanks to the teachers and pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan Batu Putih for their support and participation.
In the same evening our BSBCC education team has a session with the school children of Sandakan Vision School, where the children learnt about sun bear's diet. They got to learn and understand about the type of food that sun bears eat and apply the knowledge into the activity done - where they draw what type of food that the sun bears eat. The children also get to share their findings with their friends during the group discussion. It was a fun session and the BSBCC team will be visiting the school again in two weeks. Looking forward to meet these kids again!
