School and community outreach on Wildlife Conservation Awareness and Education Programme

On the 9th to 12th January 2023, BSBCC organised an outreach programme schools and village community in the Kinabatangan District. This programme aims to raise awareness on the wildlife conservation and addressing few issues concerning the community members related to wildlife targeting 3 primary schools (SK Tidung, SK Ladang Tomanggong, and SK Litang) and a community village (Kg. Dagat).

BSBCC invited Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre representing Sabah Wildlife Department and few NGOs; WWF-Malaysia, Seratu Aatai and Orangutan Appeal UK as participants to the programme, which was welcomed warmly by the schools and the village. A variety of activities were done to attract the students, which to our surprise, were already well established in understanding wildlife conservation.

Special thanks to all participating departments and NGOs for making this programme a success. The organiser was also in debt to the management of Tomanggong Estate of Hap Seng Plantation for accommodating our group while carrying out the programme. We hope more programme like this can be done to get more people to know our wildlife and support their conservation effort.
