KUCHING: The Malaysian Nature Society Kuching Branch (MNSKB) will be organising its signature nature event, the Santubong Nature Festival, for the second time this November.
Scheduled to be held at Permai Rainforest Resort in Santubong on Nove 8-9, the event is open to the public.
The festival is hosted by the Permai Rainforest Resort and supported by Kuching City North Hall (DBKU) and the Sarawak Museum Department.
To kick-start the event, DBKU Datuk Bandar Datuk Abang Abdul Wahap Abang Julai is expected to officiate at the festival’s soft launch at Taman Budaya (Reservoir Park) at 4pm on June 25.
The Santubong Nature Festival (SNF) aims to highlight the rich heritage of the entire Santubong peninsula, from its visually stunning appearance, to its rare clouded leopards and hornbills that call it home, right down to the dolphins that swim its shores.
It also advocates for a holistic and inte-grated approach to development and management of the area in order to safeguard its unique landscape, biodiversity and historical assets.
The organisers have lined up exciting activities such as multi-sport treasure hunt, guided heritage, geology and nature walks, tree planting, guided boat cruises and beach clean-up activity.
