11 – 15 June
We met the WWF Malaysia Semporna team in their quaint office on stilts at the end of Dragon Inn, by the marina. They were busily preparing several community activities when we reached their office. It was all girl power, with Myezana Ismat and Nina Ho at the helm as WWF staff and Lee Pei Xuan and Nattelee Lim from the Universiti Malaysia Sabah doing their WWF internship for their final year in college.
Our week’s schedule to follow activities of WWF Malaysia was quickly organized, and off we went for a quick boat trip on the fantastic Kahumbu (“whale” in the Bajau language), the new catamaran of WWF Malaysia’s Semporna Priority Conservation Area Project. We went around the areas covered by the Tun Sakaran Marine Park.
