THE 1stopbrunei Wildlife Club was recently invited to two schools in the rural areas, Bebuloh Primary School and Masin Secondary School, to conduct a sharing session.
This session was part of the educational programme initiated by the club and sponsored by the British High Commission in Brunei Darussalam.
It was hoped that this programme will create more awareness on Brunei’s pristine forests and unique animals as well as the need to preserve these gems.
During the sharing session, the club talked about the landscapes and wildlife that they have come across during their nature excursions in the country.
The club also presented a talk about the illegal trades of endangered animals in Brunei such as the selling of shark fins, turtle eggs as well as the poaching of live animals such as pangolins, otters and slow loris.
Educational posters were also distributed to the school.
With financial support from the British High Commission, the club will be able to attend to a few more schools before December.
Members of the public are also welcome to contribute by purchasing the club’s merchandises from XOIA, located at Unit BRS-36, Third Floor, The Mall, Gadong.
Proceeds will be used to fund the club’s activities, which include the free educational programme for local schools and colleges as well as rescuing and releasing of endangered animals.
