Tabin Wildlife Conservation Conquest for thrill-seekers

KOTA KINABALU - Slime and mud-splashing games await participants at the annual Tabin Wildlife Conservation Conquest to be held on March 18 and 19 at Tabin Wildlife Sanctuary in Lahad Datu, The Star reported.

There will be two core competitions this year - the Tabin Mud Parade and the Tabin Jungle Race offering non-cash prizes worth RM20,000.

The Tabin Mud Parade will test participants' skills in using traditional weapons before making them run off to gather mud from the Lipad mud volcano.

The Jungle Race involves a 12km run in the rainforest past waterfalls, rivers and hills. A statement from the organisers said that interested participants could opt to join one or both of the events depending on their physical fitness.

Those interested can obtain the application forms from the Sabah Tourism office in Kota Kinabalu or at the Intra Travel Service office at Terminal 2 of Kota Kinabalu International Airport.

Due to limited space, participation will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Those interested can contact organisers Intra Travel Service at 088-260 558/261 558 or e-mail

The event is held to give participants an opportunity to explore the many facets of Sabah's Tabin Wildlife Reserve and cultivate greater support for conservation of nature and the environment.
