The mission of the centre is to promote sun bear conservation in Borneo through animal welfare, conservation, rehabilitation, education and research – giving captured sun bears a better home and restoring their right to live in the wild. Visitors will be able to peek in on their activity from the walkway as they lumbered and played in open-air forest enclosures.
After lunch, proceed to the Borneo Rainforest Discovery Centre. Upon arrival, walk along well marked jungle trails with experienced naturalists for four km through undisturbed riverine and lowland dipterocarp forest. This is the habitat of the orang utans that also supports many other animals that thrive in this rainforest.
