You, Me & Friends “Amazing Places” ***Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Centre***

Jun24: On Day 9 of our Borneo Wildlife Adventure, we head to the Borneo Sun Bear Conservation Centre.

Nestled amidst the lush rainforests lies this hidden gem dedicated to the preservation of one of the world’s smallest bear species-the Sun Bear. As you step into the sanctuary, you will immediately be engulfed by the serenity of the dense foliage and the melodious symphony of the forest.

The center is a haven for sun bears rescued from illegal wildlife trade and deforestation. These adorable creatures, known for their golden crescent-scaped chests, will captivate your heart as you witness their playful antics and gentle demeanor.

Guided by passionate conservationists, you will learn about the challenges these bears face due to habitat loss and poaching. The centre’s efforts in rehabilitation and education are commendable, aiming to raise awareness about the importance of preserving Borneo’s biodiversity.

As you walk through the lush trails, marvel at the innovative enclosures designed to mimic the bears’ natural habitat. Observe them foraging for insects and fruits, and gain a deeper appreciation for their crucial role in maintaining forest ecosystems.

As you bid farewell to the Sun Bear Conservation Centre, you will be left with a renewed sense of responsibility to safeguard Borneo’s rich biodiversity and ensure a brighter future for these charming sun bears.

 

Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
