Since 2013, DGFC has been involved in education and conservation awareness activities, either as a participant or an organiser. DGFC’s Education and Conservation Awareness Programme is led by the Education Officer, Clarice Kelly Samih and supported by the rest of the DGFC team. Its main objectives are:
- To promote public awareness and understanding of the benefits of conservation, especially the importance of Sabah’s wildlife and its habitat.
- To implement conservation awareness programmes that have been (co-) funded by partner institutions.
In addition, since 2014 DGFC has been a member of the Sabah Environmental Education Network (SEEN) as a step towards further developing conservation-related activities in the State of Sabah. SEEN members run their programmes on their own but there is an annual meeting to report all of the activities and to discuss how to improve our environmental education programme.
