Sedili BesarDeparting from the adage “teach them young and they shall remember”, one Singapore-based organization – Eco Field Trips (EFT) – brings school kids closer top nature for a most rewarding “out-of-classroom” learning experience. Their programs span the Asia Pacific region, ranging from Turtle Conservation to understanding Agricultural Societies and their Organic way of life. Here’s a look at their program in Sedil Besar, Eastern Coast of Malaysia

Tanjung SuteraSedili Besar, Malaysia
Tanjung Sutera is located near the fishing village of Sedili Besar on the East Coast of Malaysia, and provides and excellent location for access to the most diverse rocky seashore and coastal mangroves in the area. In addition to this, Panti forest – one of the few remaining pockets of lowland rainforest in Malaysia – is a short drive from the Lodge. This range of highly biodiverse ecosystems, together with the traditional fishing village of Sedili Besar, makes a trip to Sedili suitable for fieldtrips focussing on environmental as well as anthropological study for students of all ages. Due to it’s close proximity to Singapore this location is perfectly suited for shorter trips, though Tanjung Sutera provides excellent facilities for more lengthy stays as well.
