KUCHING: Ever wondered how is it like to walk in the forest at night? Are all animals fast asleep?
As the sun sets, some animals settle down for a rest while some start to stir and bring night life to the forest.
The public are invited to learn more about forest’s night life in a coming walk at Permai Rainforest Resort, Santubong.
The Malaysian Nature Society, Kuching Branch, is organising the night walk on Sept 20 at 7pm. The walk is a lead-up activity to the Santubong Nature Festival (SNF).
“The walk will be led by society members and snake expert Hans Breur.
Participants in this activity, particularly shutter bugs are reminded not to touch or handle any wildlife spotted during the walk as this may cause stress to the animals,” said a press release from the organiser.
SNF will be held over two days on Nov 8 and 9 in Permai Rainforest Resort. The festival is co-organised by Permai Rainforest Resort and supported by Kuching City North Hall, Sarawak Museum and Sarawak Forestry Corporation.
“Monthly lead-up activities for the public have been held since July and these include talks, walks, cruises held in Kuching, and in Santubong.
Another lead-up activity is An Afternoon On Santubong featuring talks on archaeology, biodiversity and dolphins of Santubong in English at DBKU’s auditorium on Sept 24 at 2.30pm.”
