The 2nd day of the Sun Bear Rock Fund and awareness raising event has moved to University Malayan, the oldest and prestigious university in Malaysia on Sunday April 22nd. The event is part of the Universiti Malaya’s Earth Week in conjunction with the Earth Day 2012 and was co-organized by UM-Cares, SPAS, MNS, BSBCC, EcoKnights, Rockin’4 the Environment, and SGM.
The events started at 10 am with a series of talks on recycling and sustainable lifestyle. The next highlight of the day was the screening of the latest green film “One day on Earth”. After that I gave a talk on “Sun Bears, the forgotten bears”. After my talk the audience was entertain with the Sun Bear Rock musical events where several bands were performing.
Special thanks to Yasmin Rasyid, the founder of Ecoknights, all other organizers, and volunteers to make this event possible. I am also grateful to the audience who attended the event and make donation to Sun Bear Rock!
