Pulau Sibu Nature Excursion with MareCet

Pulau Sibu Nature Excursion with MareCet
Upcoming Event

We’re so excited to finally launched our first dates for a Nature Excursion to Pulau Sibu, Johor on 28 Apr – 1 May 2018!

The island is located off the east coast of Johor, an hour south of Mersing Town, and it is the area where we have been conducting our dugong research and conservation work since 2014. And now, we want to share its beauty with you in a fun, engaging and educational manner!

The island is remote and still relatively undeveloped, hence a lot of its original beauty is still preserved. It is the only place in Peninsular Malaysia where dugongs are reliably found, therefore we deem the area as a last stronghold for these gentle sea cows and is currently under consideration to be gazetted as a Dugong Sanctuary. It is also one of the last few islands in Peninsular Malaysia where traditional kampungs and kampung living still exists. For this excursion, we will engage the local islanders in their services, providing them with a livelihood income and also tapping into their local ecological and cultural knowledge of the area. We will also tap into our scientific knowledge based on the research we’ve been conducting in the area. A teaser video of the trip can be viewed here.

Kindly contact us at outreach.marecet@gmail.com or call us at 011-15776802 for any further enquiries. We hope you’ll consider joining us on this excursion and/or help us publicize this excursion to your contacts.

Re-CYCLE . Give CYCLE 2018

Re-CYCLE . Give CYCLE 2018
Upcoming Event

Original post: https://www.facebook.com/events/906864029476550/

Re-CYCLE, Give CYCLE is a project to collect, repair and restore used bicycles, and give these bicycles to children and adults surviving cancer.

Giving the restored bicycles to cancer survivors, any of whom do not have the means to afford similar or better modes of transports, would bring about meaningful difference to their lives.

You can be a part of this meaningful CYCLE by:
1. Donating your BICYCLE
2. Donating your TIME by fixing the bicycle
3. Donating MONEY to purchase tools and bicycle parts

The Re-CYCLE, Give CYCLE project also calls for volunteers’ involvement in repairing and restoring unused/donated bicycles. The BASIKAL & PEDAL MALAYA, our friendly partner in this project, will conduct a supervised workshop to teach volunteers how to restore, repair and even build bicycles.

The volunteers’ hands-on approach to bike restoration and repair is a key component of this project to foster a greater sense of ownership to the cause. It also adds greater meaning and value to the time, effort, energy and commitment volunteers put in to help provide affordable transportation to those in need.

“Donate-Fix-Give” So bring your bicycles that are no longer in use, help us spruce them up and put them to good use. Your commitment would help affect meaningful change to the lives of cancer survivors.

Note: Re-Cycle, Give Cycle is NOT a dumpsite for bicycles, therefore we only accept bicycles which are in relatively restorable condition.
