World Animal Day Celebration At Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia!


Mouse mommy and family were celebrating The World Animal Day at Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia


The World Animal Day is an international day celebrated every 4th of October with a mission to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. This annual celebration which dates back to 1925 unites the international animal welfare movement, mobilising it into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals.


To coincide with the special day, Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park – an interactive and educational zoo featuring more than 140 species-specific exhibits of exotic animals and a diverse range of birds, fish, reptiles and mammals from around the world – held a special campaign to urge you to do your part to create a more sustainable world.


Many species of wildlife can be found here. Family and kids will get to know more about animals by seeing real life animal here and information board sharing more about the animals.


In recent years, the Wildlife Park at Sunway Lagoon has stepped up efforts towards being more sustainable. 


Among these, Sunway Lagoon announced its support towards two of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the United Nations. 



The SDG programme contains a total of 17 goals which the United Nations aims to achieve by the year 2030. It is a universal call to action, in a bid to end poverty, protect the planet and to ensure that all people can enjoy the diverse richness which Mother Nature exudes.


Out of the 17 goals, Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park has, without equivocation, committed towards supporting two of these goals. These include Responsible Consumption and Production (Goal #12), aimed at ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns and Life on Land (Goal #15), which aims to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.
    


 “For World Animal Day this year, we wanted to create an experience where people of all ages can enjoy the Wildlife Park, while learning more about how they can play a role in protecting our environment. All this ties in with our commitment to be more responsible and sustainable, yet presenting a unique and exciting opportunity for the public to enjoy, especially the younger ones, because they are the future of our planet, and will take on the baton towards environmental conservation,” said Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon.


Be an Earth warrior and make a difference for a more sustainable world. Mouse mommy and kids MR MH are in the Sun Bear team and learn about the food, habitat and enrichment activities that related to Sun Bear routine life!


Do you know Sun Bear also called Honey Bear? Because Sun Bear is a honey-lover! Ehhhmmm…. Mouse mommy and kids MR MH love honey drink too! High-five with Honey Bear!



Enrichment program for animal is basically create scenario that Sun Bear need to find ways to eat the given food. Some activities for the animals to explore by themselves. Animal enrichment is very important to zoo animals.


Animal enrichments is meant to improve the animal’s environments and care based on their natural behaviours and instincts

Environmental enrichments can help lower an animal’s aggression and abnormal behaviour.


The World Animal Day celebrations at Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park also took on an exciting yet heartwarming turn this year, when the park announced its latest project of adopting a few river terrapins from Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia as a support towards the conservation works for these freshwater turtle in the country.


“The aim of the society is to bring about the recovery of depleted wild populations of turtles, with particular reference to freshwater turtles. With the same goal in mind, we are extremely honoured to have the opportunity to work with Sunway Lagoon on this project,” said Dr Chen Pelf Nyok, co-founder of Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia.


Paradoxically, Sunway Lagoon will also be constructing a pygmy goat enclosure at Pet Village that is made out of Ecobricks. The theme park targets to produce approximately 1000 Ecobricks, made using mineral water bottles collected from the recycle bins in the park. Each Ecobrick contains about 200g of non-recyclable plastic waste. With that amount of Ecobricks, the project aims to save approximately 200kg of non-recyclable plastics trash from the landfill. The theme park aims to construct and launch the enclosure by World Earth Day next year.


Guests were specially invited to Sunway Lagoon Wildlife Parks World Animal Day event to enjoy a host of activities and initiatives specially curated to mark this meaningful celebration. 


These included an Ecobrick making workshop, a take home garden workshop, meet & greet with Bani the Wildlife Park ambassador, a display by the Department of Wildlife and National Parks (PERHILITAN), and Save the Earth Pledge wall, where visitors can mark their pledge towards reducing single-use plastics.


After that, MR and MH are happily joining the water splashing fun at Nickelodeon water park at Sunway Lagoon to have fun!

SPIRIT OF WIPRO RUN 2019 #FURTHERTOGETHER



SPIRIT OF WIPRO RUN is back and it was bigger than ever! This is the 9th year anniversary for the Spirit of Wipro Run. On an international level, it is the 14th year anniversary of this momentous occasion. Runners kick started their day being out Sunday morning and rejoiced as the weather was clear. They enjoyed fun activities and a yummy breakfast. This year the Wipro team came up with the theme of going #FurtherTogether – to face the challenges before us in unity and adversity.


Mouse mommy and MR are happy to join the Wipro SOW Run 2019 at Padang Semarak, Wetlands Putrajaya. This is the 2nd year we are joining, love the Wipro family day concept with many activities for the entire family members and kids.


The run started all the way back in July 2006 in the efforts of bringing the community together and to give back to those who have shown support for Wipro in their years of being in service. Their main goal is to give contributions back to the society through 3 charity categories which are Community, Education, and Ecology


The SPIRIT OF WIPRO RUN has become one of the largest global employee events in the world. It is available in 110 cities across 34 countries including New Jersey, Portland, Sydney, and many more.

 The SPIRIT OF WIPRO RUN has always been about giving back to the communities we work and live in. We aim to connect the Spirit of Wipro with our community and share our corporate mission of creating a just, equitable, humane and sustainable world,” said Mr Kumar Chander, Regional Director, South East Asia & Middle East in his energetic speech.



SPIRIT OF WIPRO RUN had categories for all ages. Competitive runners aged 12 years and above were challenged in the following categories: Men Open 8km Category and Women Open 8km Category. The top 3 winners of the 3km & 8km run were awarded with medals and hampers filled with awesome goodies. Participants in the 8km run also get their very own finisher medal at the finish line.


The running path at Wetlands Putrajaya included tiled pavement, gravel road and dirt road. Runners got the opportunity to get to know the wetlands geographic, plants and nature surroundings. 


Educational and fun running experience with kids! MR also bring along myFirst Fone S2 and Camera 2 to explore the wetlands together with mouse mommy!




Parents, kids, and senior citizens joined in on the 3km Family Fun Run at SPIRIT OF WIPRO RUN. The Family Fun Run was only 3KM long and it was perfect for families to sightsee the beautiful green scenery in Padang Semarak.


All runners also enjoying yummy breakfast after run. 


Got water activity, water pong, power squitter and mask painting activities for children. Runners join in the game booths that gave many attractive prizes! 



There were also plenty of water activities that cooled off the runners from the heat. 




Kids got to unleash their creative side by joining the mask painting competition.


Patrons also enjoyed the candy floss, popcorn, ice cream, and left the event with smiles on their faces and their hearts filled with warmth. 


Family run is a great outdoor activity that promote healthy lifestyle and create family bonding moments too!


We are looking forward to participate WIPRO SOW Run 2020! Cheers!
