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!

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

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!!
