Pulau Sibu Nature Excursion with MareCet

Dear friends of MareCet,

We’re are pleased to announce that we will be having the second trip of our Pulau Sibu (Johor) Nature Excursion next year on 1 – 4 May 2019!

Pulau Sibu is located off the east coast of Johor and it is the area where we have been conducting our dugong research and conservation work since 2014. 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. It is also one of the last few islands in Peninsular Malaysia where traditional kampungs (villages) and kampung living still exists. For the 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. We will share with you the beauty of the island and its surrounding in a fun, engaging and educational manner!

For any further enquiries and/or trip booking, please do not hesitate to contact us at outreach.marecet@gmail.com. We look forward to having you and your friends/family on the excursion.

Thank you.

Regards,
The MareCet Team
