Wai Pak gave them an introduction about Malayan sun bear, their conservation issues, and our centre concepts, mission and planning. They also have the chance to see how the bear having their enrichment program in the exercise enclosures.
They agreed that sun bear were not well known by our people. They were glad that BSBCC is not only will involve the rehabilitation work, but alsol emphasis on environment education to raise the public awareness on sun bears and the tropical rainforest.
BSBCC is happy to have more visitors from universities as well as other institutions. Even though we have do not have our facilities properly built, we are trying our best to explain to our visitors about our very unique sun bears, their situation and their threats.
