Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre

The mission of the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre in Sabah, Malaysia, 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, by:

  • Creating the capacity to confiscate, rehabilitate and release suitable orphaned and ex-captive bears back into the wild.
  • Providing an improved long-term living environment for captive bears that cannot be released.
  • Educating the public and raising awareness about this species.
  • Achieving increased protection for sun bears and their habitat through ongoing research, increased knowledge and awareness, and further protection of habitat.

Turtle Island Park

Selingan, one of the composition of Turtle Island Park, houses the park’s headquarters, a turtle hatchery, tourist accommodation and basic facilities. Turtles lay their eggs throughout the year, but the best time to head there is between July and October. As turtle landings usually occur after dusk, an overnight stay would be the best plan to see the turtles as they come ashore to lay their eggs, but shining a light on them or using camera flashes should be avoided as either can be stressful on the creatures.
