On July 2, Sylvia Alsisto from Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre came and asked me to present a talk about sun bear and BSBCC. Of course I am more than happy to do that as I had done that to several groups of volunteer. However, it ended up with a three-day talk to three groups of students. The most challenging part was the audience was ranged from 8 – 17 years old school kids! I have to tell you that the first image that bangs into my minds was a group of “monkey” yelling and jumping here and there!
I was only given a night to prepare the presentation. I have to modified and practice my speech so that the kids won’t get bored with all the science facts and terms. I also invited two guests to my talk who were Winnie and Teddy (toys that I borrowed from Cecilia)! With two of them, I started my introduction and I managed to grab the audience attention!
