Sunway Lagoon | World Animal Day 2019 | Zoomanji Challenge

Dr Chen Pelf Nyok gave a talk about the critically endangered river terrapins. In order to prolong the existence of river terrapins, Dr Chen co-founded a non-profit organisation – Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia. With the project site based in Kemaman, Dr Chen hopes their conservation effort will help save these endangered river terrapins.
The Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia hold many public outreach programmes as well as hands-on activities to the public to raise funds and awareness on river terrapins.
You too can be part of the conservation effort. To learn more how you can help these river terrapins, follow TCS at their social media sites:

Sunway Lagoon Malaysia is doing its part too by adopting several river terrapins to be housed at their Wildlife Park to enable the public to learn more about this endangered animal with the hope that more people will join in the conservation efforts.
Home to more than 150 species in the Wildlife Park, we embarked on an interactive journey to learn about the variety of animals the park houses while completing the Zoomanji Challenge.
We (especially the boys) got a priceless out of classroom learning experience as we learned to make Ecobricks, grow our own food and attended a well-designed Animal Enrichment workshop at the Wildlife Theatre.
We also took this opportunity to spend quality time and enjoy the park to its fullest.
