KOTA KINABALU: Three popular Sabah wildlife parks will reopen to Malaysians from Monday (June 15).
The Lok Kawi Wildlife Park near here, the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and the Bornean Sun Bear Centre in Sandakan will be back to normal business since closing on March 18 following the implementation of the movement control order (MCO), said Sabah Wildlife Department director Augustine Tuuga.
He said the opening was in line with the government's decision to allow eco-tourism sectors to begin operations.
However, he said they would adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOP) set by the state Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry as well as the guidelines of the National Security Council and Health Ministry on measures to be taken to check to check the spread of Covid-19.
"The three popular tourist spots are only open to Malaysian visitors for the time being.
"I advise visitors, in the interest of personal safety, to follow the SOP which has been set as the new norm to avoid the spread of Covid-19 while visiting these centres," Tuuga said in a statement Saturday (June 13).
