4th Borneo Rhythms of Rimba Wildlife Festival is back

4th July, 2018

SANDAKAN: The 4th Borneo Rhythms of Rimba (ROR) Wildlife Festival returns after a year’s hiatus; moving from the steamy rainforests in Sandakan to the long white beaches of Nexus Karambunai in Kota Kinabalu.

The not-for-profit, experiential education platform which will be held on Sep 15 and 16, brings together environmental content to the public through interactive and fun exchanges.

Future Alam Borneo (FAB) the organisers of ROR festival will explore the issues of Marine Conservation and Sustainability this year through large scale art and design installations, and the collaboration of scientists, creatives and local communities.

International guests from United States such as Kimi Werner (of NatGeo and Discovery Channel fame) will share her concepts of sustainable living and Sky Tribe (extreme sports athletes) installing their space net at sea.

Gary Stokes, director of Sea Shepherd Asia, seaweed-based packaging from Evoware Indonesia, Love Wildlife Foundation Thailand, VSS story from Singapore and many more international friends will be landing in Borneo to share their experiences.

FAB will also be hosting for the very first time, an exposition on oil palm. Looking at the industry and gathering various stakeholders for an overview of the crop on Borneo’s economic and cultural future.

Each evening will feature musical celebrations featuring artistes such as Ning Baizura, Alena Murang, Sada Borneo and many more performers with a passion for the planet.

The two- day event will feature an amazing kaleidoscope of content in Conservation, Creativity, Adventure, Music and Sustainability zones; from street art to yoga, nature inspired jewellery to camping out in the trees.

ROR festival will see children, youth, families as well as environmentally-conscious adults come together in a celebration of Borneo’s biodiversity. – By James Leong
