Borneo Rhythms of Rimba wildlife festival

SANDAKAN: Borneo Rhythms of Rimba (ROR) wildlife festival will be held on August 20-21 at the Rainforest Discovery Centre in Sepilok, here.

Conservation talks and documentary screenings will feature in the Kabili theatre throughout the day.

A floating yoga platform, a 100-metre long zipline over the RDC lake and a Man vs. Wildlife challenge will be the highlights of this year’s adventure zone.

There will also be more than 15 creative personalities and orgnisations running activities, such as Catama Borneo from Sarawak with an indigenous dance workshop, and Eijau group from Kuala Lumpur with their eco drums and wayang kulit performances.

There will be music in the evenings.

Both days will start from 10am until 10pm.

The vision and mission of the festival is to bring environmental knowledge and awareness to people, and to encourage a greater love for Borneo’s natural environment by exploring and playing in the forests.
