The Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC) has lined up a series of interesting and exciting talks for the public during its Biodiversity Day celebrations come 23 and 24 May at its premises in Semengoh, near Kuching.

On 23 May the public talks will kick off at 2.00pm with “Biodiversity for Sustainable Development” by Anthony Sebastian, Chairman of the Malaysian Nature Society, Kuching Branch.

The talk will highlight how biodiversity plays a crucial and synergistic role in sustainable development. This will be followed by a dazzling display on “Begonias of Borneo” by Dr Ruth Kiew and Julia Sang. Their presentation will be based on their recently released book of the same title.

Dr Kiew is a known expert on Begonia species and is attached to the Forest Research Institute, Malaysia (FRIM) while Julia is with the Sarawak Forestry Corporation.

On 24 May, SBC will feature three talks, starting with “The Amazing Journey of a Plastic Bag” by Ian Carter of Go-Go-Green at 1.30pm. This will be followed by a talk on “Magnificent Flora and Fauna of Malaysia” by Prof Emeritus Yong Hoi Sen of the Academy of Sciences, Malaysia.

To end the series of talks, SBC has arranged for Ong Poh Teck also of FRIM, who will present on “Orchids, Beautiful Gems of the Forest”.

Those interested in attending these talks are advised to register with SBC by sending their names and contact numbers via email to biosar@sbc.org.my or by calling Mr Ha-Mim Marzuki at 082-610610 during office hours.

Other than these public talks, SBC will also feature science based games, interactive hands-on demonstrations and exhibitions for both the young and old alike, and opportunities to dress up and take photographs as scientists on both days.

Visitors to Biodiversity Day will also be able to tour SBC’s Laila Taib Ethnobotanical Garden which features plants used by indigenous communities in their daily lives, buy plants which include commonly used herbs and spices, and view exhibitions and demonstrations by indigenous communities on how they utilise biodiversity.

Primary school children will also have the opportunity to take part in SBC’s pottery painting and recycled art contests.

SBC’s Biodiversity day is held in conjunction with the International Day for Biological Diversity which falls on 22 May annually.

This year’s international theme is Biodiversity for Sustainable Development and SBC is committed to partake and take initiatives to organise the Biodiversity Day with even more interesting activities and public talks.

The events will take place from 9.00am until 5.00pm on 23rd and 24th of May 2015 (Saturday and Sunday) at SBC’s premises at KM20, Jalan Borneo Heights, Semengoh, Kuching.
