All participants displayed a remarkable level of teamwork, unity, and dedication towards a shared goal of improving the environment, fostering a sense of camaraderie, and strengthening their bond.
A group of 27 students from Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation’s Forensic & Cybersecurity Research Center - Student Section (FSEC-SS) successfully completed an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) at the Zoo Negara on 7th July 2023.
Dr. Julia Juremi, Ms. Noris Ismail, Mr. Mohd. Hanis Jenalis, Ms. Nik Nurul Ain Nik Suki, Ms. Rizawati Rohizan, and Ms. Zaireeda Mohd. Fauzee from the School of Technology (SoT) accompanied the students.
This ESG activity aims to give back to the community and promote a sense of responsibility in participants through a range of tasks including cleaning, feeding animals, and providing enrichment activities.
Equipped with cleaning tools and a strong sense of purpose, they embarked on their mission to enhance the cleanliness of the Kancil Hall and Tunku Abdul Rahman Theatre within the Zoo premises.
All participants were divided into smaller groups and strategically planned their approach to ensure maximum efficiency.
They worked diligently to scrap wall paint and remove any litter, debris, and unwanted items from the designated areas.
