Sunway Lagoon | World Animal Day 2019 | Zoomanji Challenge

We took a walk on the wild side for an edutaining experience at Sunway Lagoon during the launch of World Animal Day 2019 last Saturday, 4 October 2019.

Mr. Sean Choo, GM of Sunway Lagoon also announced its part in the conservation works to save river terrapins by adopting several river terrapins from the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia.

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.

I would also like to take this opportunity to share a video we did previously that showcases the animals at Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Park:

    My girl just said the other day – why isn’t there a petting zoo here? She would love to go and play with the animals. She loves animals…but the mum would not let her keep any pets. Sad.

    Fun time for the children!

    Hard to find and see river terrapins. People still catch it and sell as exotic food here.

    Wonder when I be visiting Sunway. Last trip was in 2014.
