Wildlife explorer programme for kids


A group working together to find answers to a question as part of a quiz.

KEMAMAN: A total of 88 participants took part in the “Wildlife Explorer” programme, an educational event organised by the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia (TCS).

Hosted by the Taman Rekreasi dan Zoo Kemaman (TRZK), and supported by Lions Clubs of Kemaman and Kuantan, the programme targeted 12-year-old pupils to expose them to some of the endangered wildlife in Malaysia.

The event also gave them a behind-the-scenes experience at the zoo.

Participants were not only taken on a tour of the zoo and given multiple briefings about the endangered wildlife and the threats that they face, they were also given some hands-on opportunity to prepare food for some of the animals.

Each of them was given a booklet where they could sketch or write notes as they were being briefed.
