The Malaysian Nature Society Kuching Branch (MNSKB) is pleased to announce that it will be organising its signature nature event, the Santubong Nature Festival, for the second time this November.
Scheduled to be held at Permai Rainforest Resort in Santubong on 8thand 9th November, the event is open to the public.
The festival is hosted by the Permai Rainforest Resort and supported by Kuching City North Hall (DBKU) and the Sarawak Museum Department.
The Santubong Nature Festival (SNF) aims at highlighting the rich heritage of the entire Santubong peninsula, from its visually stunning appearance, to its rare clouded leopards and hornbills that call it home, right down to the dolphins that swim its shores.
It also advocates for a holistic and integrated approach to development and management of the area safeguarding its unique landscape, biodiversity and historical assets; and showcases the tourism and recreational potential of the Santubong Peninsula.
Following last year’s festival success, the two-day event will continue to highlight Santubong peninsula’s natural, historical and cultural heritage.
The organisers have lined up exciting activities such as multi-sport treasure hunt, guided heritage, geology and nature walks, tree planting, guided boat cruises and beach clean-up activity will be held between now and festival day.
A series of talks on geology, archaeology, dolphins and biodiversity of Santubong will also be held in the city and Permai Rainforest Resort. Watch out for this page for updates on activities and festival.
