Million thanks a Thai Volunteer, Suppalak KAEWkwan who had just finished her one month volunteering in BSBCC.

Thanks for helping out the smallest bear species in the world, the Sun Bear! Thank you for sharing your vet medicine’s knowledge and experience in taking care of the animal. Last but not least, thanks for giving a chance in language exchange in between Thai and Malay.

All the best in your writing for your PhD research study and please come back anytime you want for visiting the bears and us! Safe flight to Hokkaido and big bear hugs!

ขอบคุณค่ะ [khob khun kha]

Volunteer Story – 2 Amazing Weeks in BSBCC

Volunteer Story – 2 Amazing Weeks in BSBCC
Post

“At the beginning of the whole experience, I was very nervous of what I was getting myself into. I remember having to wipe the sweat off my palms because I was so nervous during the interview. I was also very worried about travelling to a foreign place and not knowing anybody there. However, all my worries melted away when I arrived. The staff were incredibly welcoming and immediately treated me as one of them the first day I was there. They made sure I was well taken care of and understood everything that was going on. It made me feel very welcomed and also made me gain a new sense of respect for how well run the organization is.” – Kimberly Louise Tam
