A total of fifteen participants took part in the Zoo Negara Environmental project on the 18th December 2014, Thursday. Our group consisted of 14 KDU LEO members and one KDU staff, Mr.Mohamad Norhayatudin bin Mohmad Yaacob.
The Education Officer divided us into groups of four or five. There were a total of four different groups which were made responsible for different areas of Zoo Negara Malaysia, such as the bears’ enclosure, the reptiles’ area, the performance and show area and the children’s world. Each group was accompanied by a few zoo keepers. Our objective there was to learn and assist Zoo Negara Malaysia in its daily operations. The volunteer programme continued until noon.
Working with the zoo keepers and the animals was an eye- opening experience for the LEO members. Some of the members said that they would volunteer again to achieve the 40 hours participation at the Zoo Negara Malaysia, in order to be certified with the official Volunteering Certificate.
The Zoo Negara Environmental project is targeted as a medium for delivering comprehensive environmental education and networking opportunities to the LEO members, as well as to publicise the KDU Leo Club. The KDU LEO Club will continue to organise more projects such as these to ignite interest of Leo members to get involved with the LEO Club activities.
