THE Biodiversity & Natural History Society (BruWILD), in its continuous efforts to help and build public understanding of conserving Brunei’s bio-assets and natural heritage, yesterday held another ‘Call of the WILD’ session at the International School Brunei (ISB), this time with an edition focusing on frogs.
A number of Year 3 and 4 students from the school were invited to participate in the activities, which were lined up to educate them on distinguishing between frogs and toads as well as to understand the functions of the abilities of frogs and the important roles that they play in the ecosystem.
Lin Ji Liaw, President of BruWILD in an interview with the media said that the society’s main aim is to provide as much information possible and to educate the residents of Brunei on the importance of preserving the biodiversity, especially as Brunei boasts the richest assemblage of flora and fauna.
The ‘Call of the WILD’ is a series of sessions where BruWILD talks about different types of animals, their characteristics, how to handle the flora and fauna as well as the opportunity to see the living and non-living specimens up close.
Established in August 2013 (formally registered on April 2014), BruWILD is an independent group of trained biologists and conservationists.
BruWILD consists of mammal specialists, herpetologists, ornithologists, botanists and marine life specialists.
