KUCHING, Jan 16: All activities related to forests, including jungle trekking, research, and bird watching, are temporarily prohibited at Santubong National Park until further notice.

The Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) has enforced this restriction due to the ongoing monsoon season, which may bring unfavorable weather conditions for outdoor activities.

The aim is to prevent potential accidents at the site and prioritise the safety of visitors.

“This precaution underscores the significance of maintaining a secure environment for all visitors.

“Your understanding and cooperation are genuinely appreciated as we prioritise the safety of everyone in the park,” SFC stated in an announcement posted on its social media on Sunday (Jan 14).

Similarly, the Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park is also closed until further notice in response to the monsoon season.

For updates and further information, the public is encouraged to stay informed through SFC’s official communication channels. Additionally, any inquiries can be directed to the park office at 011-657 30730. — DayakDaily
