THE 1stopbrunei Wildlife Club was recently invited to Katok Secondary School for a sharing session with the school’s volunteering club.
The wildlife club hoped that their talk would encourage the students to appreciate Brunei’s nature and environment.
During the session, the club shared interesting information with regards to endangered animals in Brunei such as the Irrawaddy Dolphins and the Wagler’s pit viper, locally known as ‘Ular Malas’ as it remains motionless for long periods of time for its prey to come by.
The club also shared their new discoveries of wildlife and beautiful landscapes in Brunei.
Educational posters featuring information on the status and characteristics of various endangered wildlife were also distributed.
A live endangered pangolin was also brought in by the club to surprise the students.
The pangolin was later released after the session.
1stopbrunei Wildlife Club is a non-profit organisation whose main objective is to protect and preserve Brunei’s wildlife.
Previously, they have rescued a number of endangered wildlife including the pangolin and slow loris. They also conduct free talks at schools and colleges to raise awareness on the need to protect the wildlife.
At present, the club is experiencing shortage of funds for their activities. Corporate organisations as well as individuals who are interested to contribute to their cause can contact them through their Facebook page at 1stopbrunei Wildlife or Instagram @wildlifeclub.
