THE Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre and Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, which had been closed to the public since March 18 following the movement-control order, will reopen this Monday.

Sabah wildlife department director Augustine Tuuga said the centres would have to adhere to standard operating procedures set by the Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry, the National Security Council and Health Ministry to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

“Please be clear that the three popular tourist spots are only open to locals and Malaysian visitors for the time being. For personal safety, I advise visitors to abide by the SOPs that have been set, to prevent the spread of Covid-19 while visiting these centres,” he said.

The statement follows the government announcement that the ecotourism sector can reopen. – Bernama, June 13, 2020.
