KOTA KINABALU: Stateless youths in Semporna learned the meaning and value of marine conservation through a series of classes at the Sabah East Coast district.

Held jointly by Reef Check Malaysia, Borneo Komrad and Green Semporna, the two-day lecture starting on June 7, covered topics on the ocean, coral reef ecosystem and turtle conservation.

“They live very close to the ocean and it saddens me that they know almost nothing about what the ocean has to offer,” said Mukmin Nantang, the founder and one of the teachers in Borneo Komrad.“This class is to provide them with the knowledge so that they will appreciate what they have in their backyard and will not end up becoming one of those people that contributed to the destruction of the sea such as fish bombing, littering and overexploiting marine resources,” he added.

Reef Check Malaysia programme manager Adzmin Fatta said their goal to sustainably manage and conserve the coral reef ecosystem should always involve the coastal communities. “At the very least, this knowledge will prepare them for the future of our ocean, for the better or for the worse,” he added.
