We know that Sabah is one of the place in this world that still has some natural habitat to wildlife creatures. However, to those who found out it is sometimes difficult to get to the remote place where this natural habitat live, then Lok Kawi Wildlife Park that was newly opened to public, is a good alternative. Visitor can see a number of ‘local’ animal like orang utan and proboscis monkey away from their natural habitat.
We went to the park on the 18th February, on the second day the park was opened to the public. Although the entrance fee that cost RM10 per adult is quite expensive (I think?), but for nature and wildlife conservation purposes, I don’t think it matters. At least, that’s the thing that we could do to support the park and the animals.
Well, after walking for about half an hour, and trying to explain and introduce all the animals to my 2 year old son, we got exhausted. At least, by doing that, he will be more educated than just being in front of the tv watching the animals from Animal Planet.
These are some of the photos that I took from the park.
Our group. I brought my 4-months old baby also.
My son infront of the elephant cage. Oh, he is trying to show me ‘peace’ sign with his finger. Until now he can only show his index finger…
I don’t know why they made this and why I take photo of it. I guess I just want to share with you the thing that they got.
They also have a couple of ostrich.
Adult proboscis monkey – in a cage. Notice the big golden colour nose?
The nose for young proboscis monkey is dark colour. It changes as they grow older.
