Pullman Hotel Kuching does its bit in orangutan conservation

KUCHING: On top of experiencing the luxury of staying at Pullman Kuching Hotel (Pullman), guests will have the opportunity to meet Sarawak’s very own red-haired celebrity – the orangutan.

“This is the first time in the world that a five-star brand, such as Pullman Hotel, collaborate (with a government agency) collaborate in orangutan conservation,” said Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) managing director and CEO Datu Len Talif Salleh during the launch of Earth Guest Discovery (EGD) package.

EGD package was created to encourage the hotel’s in-house guests to participate in the ‘Heart 2 Heart’ orangutan conservation programme run by SFC.

Heart 2 Heart is a one-day programme that allows the public to actively participate in orangutan rehabilitation at Matang and Semenggoh Wildlife Centres.

By direct involvement in hands-on conservation activities, Len saw the package as a chance for the public to see and experience the life as a conservationist or contribute to conservation.

“This would definitely boost our promotional effort in creating public awareness and participation in conservation activities.

“With this package, foreign visitors will get to experience for themselves the conservation efforts for orangutans. We believe this will build passion and commitment among the public to help us in protecting and conserving wildlife,” he said.
