We would like to express our millions of appreciation and special credits to the Ministry of Tourism Malaysia through the Sabah Wildlife Department, for providing us the funds to expand the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC).
Now, we are pleased to announce the completion of our observation platform, elevated board walk that link the car park to the observation platform, and the access road to the bear house.

The BSBCC is expecting to be opened for the public by next year (2013), and we are looking forward to seeing you here soon!
And now our remaining task is to raise sufficient funds for the construction of:
- The second bear house
- Visitor briefing area
- Renovation of office area
- Bear holding area
The completion of these components is crucial for the success for BSBCC to achieve our missions which is to conserve sun bears through a combination of education, rehabilitation, research, and improve the welfare of captive orphaned sun bears!
