The second part of the CABEP is an outreach program whereby the Interactors who had taken part in the fieldtrips to Samarakan outreach to the community by giving presentations on conservation & biodiversity topics to younger students.

Interactors from SMK Bintulu and Bandar Bintulu conducted these outreach programs to primary school students at SK Baru and SJK Chung Hua (2) respectively on 21st and 29 June 2010.

SMK Bintulu had a team of 4 to do the presentation to a class of over 40 primary 6 students, covering topics on Water Conservation, Odonata, Plants and Animals.

A big thank you to Headmistress Puan Helen Chai for her strong support of this program.

SMK Bandar presented to 60 primary 6 students (15 selected from each of 4 classes), in Mandarin and English, on Water Conservation, Odonata and Plastics as well as showing some pretty pictures of what they had seen and photograph during their field trip to Samarakan earlier in the year. Reuseable bags were given away as prizes to students who could answer the questions after their talks.

Again a big thank you to the Principal and teachers of SJK Chung Hua for their support.
