I visited the SBC for a research internship, which was a part of my M.Sc. studies in Chemistry. During my stay I was attached to the microbe lab and my topic was occupying with isolation and identification of Myxobacteria. My field of interests are biodiversity, biochemistry and microbiology, but I was also keen to discover the unique nature of Malaysia. Thus, I could perfectly combine my interests for my research purposes in this internship.

Wildlife conservation has been an immense passion for me ever since I started my career with WCS-Malaysia Program in 2005. My first encounter with orang-utans in the wild in April 2006 at Batang Ai National Park: we were ‘ambushed’ by two juvenile orang-utans and caught underneath a broken tree branch thrown at us, became the turning point that grew my attitude from ‘just doing my job’ as a researcher into a sense of awe and respect, attraction and deep affection for the endangered yet very intelligent animal.
Being a scholarship student at International School of Kuala Lumpur, it is rare that the opportunity for an internship, particularly one as good as SBC, is presented.
