UNDP Resident Representative Visit

24th September 2017, we were very honored to welcome a visit from Mr. Stefan Priesner, the UN Resident Coordinator for Malaysia and UNDP Resident Representative for Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei Darussalam. He was accompanied by Ms Gan Pek Chuan, Programme Manager for UNDP Malaysia. They were brought for a tour around our Centre, observing the sun bears in the forest enclosure. Thank you very much for spending the time to visit BSBCC and we hope that they enjoyed to see the bears and on the same time learning about our efforts in sun bears conservation.

A school group from SK Sungai Tiram, Sandakan visited our Centre today! During their visit, we assigned the students to answer a set of questions about sun bears in the Sun Bear Explorer Book and on the same time they enjoyed to watch the sun bears activities in the forest enclosure. Through this activity, they were able to learn and understand better about sun bears! Thank you for visiting our Centre!

Bear Story – A Castle of Wood. A Playground for Bears

Noah and Nano arrived at our Centre in October 2016 and November 2016 respectively. Both of them were rescued by the Sabah Wildlife Department and sent to BSBCC for rehabilitation.

Read the story about how Noah and Nano take their courage to step into the forest enclosure, a new journey for them after being rescued.

Noah is braver than Nano to explore the new environment. Instead of stepping out to the forest enclosure, he rather stays in the bear house. Hopefully one day he will be more courageous to go out.

Noah is now enjoying his life exploring in the forest.

Millions thanks to Woo Chee Yoong, Nur Athirah Binti Asrif and Batrisya Binti Teepol, students from UNIMAS who had just finished their 69 days internship in BSBCC.

The bears are barking out loud for saying thank you for the care and love that sharing for them. Three of you are just amazing and brings a lot of joy and laughter for the bear care team. All the best in your future. Please feel free to come and visit us with the bears in the near future.

Big bear hugs!!
