    With more awareness talks to schools, it is hoped that the problems of encroaching and poaching in protected areas can slowly be reduced and hopefully eradicated in the future.

    The area covered are surrounding the protected areas of Danum Valley, Maliau Basin and Imbak Canyon Conservation Area.

    The Outcome:

    The students will have a better knowledge on which type of animals that are protected and highly protected and also the penalties faced by poachers under the Wildlife Conservation Enactment 1997.

    The students will be aware on their role to educate people around them and to inform any encroaching and poaching activities in the protected areas to the relevant authorities around them.
