On 16th May 2018, BSBCC celebrated our 2nd Sun Bear Day. More than 80 primary and secondary students from the schools around Sandakan were invited to participate and celebrate this special day. It was a pleasure to be visited by our friends and supporters in conservation as well.
The Sun Bear day was initiated to draw awareness for the smallest bear species in the world and to remember our first sun bear, Natalie, who was released back into the wild in 2015! This special day was also dedicated to our Papa Bear Dr. Wong as BSBCC‘s CEO & Founder, for his endless efforts in sun bear conservation. An unveiling ceremony was performed by Dr. Wong for the handmade Sun Bear Clay Art by Ms. Tan Tzy Ean. A mini celebration was also carried out for Dr. Wong‘s birthday where all staff, participants and invited guests gathered and partied at the BSBCC garden area.
It was indeed a fun and memorable day for everyone involved. We are looking forward to the next year‘s Sun Bear Day!
