SEGi College Sarawak is taking innovative steps to enhance the understanding of evolution and living organisms among its Certificate in Science (CIS) students. In a recent initiative led by the esteemed lecturers from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (FOMNHS), a captivating field trip was organised to Malaysia’s first and largest captive breeding crocodile farm, Jong’s Crocodile Farm and Zoo.
The primary objective of this immersive experience was to provide CIS students with a unique opportunity to delve into the intricate world of living organisms while appreciating the distinct characteristics of animal species. Beyond the awe-inspiring crocodiles, the students delved into the remarkable traits, habitats, and behaviours of various animal species, including monkeys, birds, fishes, and snakes.
This dynamic field trip served as an educational escapade and a source of inspiration for the students. It allowed them to develop a profound appreciation for the wonders of nature and its astounding beauty while reinforcing the scientific knowledge imparted within the classroom.
According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), biodiversity is crucial to the well-being of our planet. Unfortunately, it’s reported that over 30% of the world’s species are threatened with extinction, making it vital to educate the next generation about the importance of preserving and understanding our planet’s diverse ecosystems.
SEGi College Sarawak’s commitment to enriching students’ learning experiences and fostering an understanding of our planet’s diverse ecosystems is a testament to its dedication to academic excellence. This initiative exemplifies the institution’s innovative approach to education, preparing students to be well-rounded individuals who appreciate the intricate balance of life on Earth.
