Beautifying and Cleaning Zoo Negara
As part of PPB's CSR activities to care for the environment, 60 PPB Group staff and their family members participated in a 1-day Volunteer Programme at Zoo Negara, Hulu Kelang, Ampang which was held on Saturday, 1 December 2012.
The day at the Zoo started off at 8.30 am with a warm welcome note by the Education Officer of Zoo Negara followed by a safety briefing and assignment of tasks.
PPB sponsored the Heliconia Walk to beautify the landscape of the Zoo and some PPB Group volunteers were assigned to plant heliconias at designated areas. The other volunteers assisted the Zoo Keepers in the cleaning, food preparation and even feeding the animals at different sections namely, Savannah Walk, Reptile House, Mammal Kingdom, Cat Walk, Deer Park etc.
After hours of hard labour under the scorching sun, the volunteers stopped for lunch followed by a short tour around the Zoo and thereafter continued with their tasks.
It was indeed a tiring day but a wonderful experience for all as they got close to the animals, some could touch them as well as witness the back areas of the Zoo.
