The Bandar Seri Begawan Youth Centre Club of the Youth and Sports Department, Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports yesterday organised an educational trip to the Selirong Island Park as part of the second school holiday activities.

It was participated by 25 members of the club. They were accompanied by eight staff from the Youth Centre and two officials from the Forestry Department.

Selirong Island, which is 30 minutes from Bandar Seri Begawan by boat, is a place for one to experience Brunei's nature.

The Selirong Forest Recreation Park is preserved solely for outdoor recreation, research, and nature education. The mangrove wonderland is a breeding ground for much of the marine lives that populate Brunei Bay.

The trip was held in collaboration with the Museums Department, Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports that provided water transportation for the group.

The activity kicked off at about 8am yesterday.

The participants were given a briefing by the Forestry Department officials and explored the island on foot.
