Genting Back to Nature Eco Retreat 2015 with Underprivileged Children

Resort World Genting has organized their annual Back To Nature Eco Retreat and Team E.T.A was given the chance to join in. The event is part of Resort World Genting CSR program to foster awareness and appreciation on conserving nature among the public. The event stressed on taking care of the environment and the tropical rainforest that we have in our country.

The event started with the registration of the media and the participants at Awana Longhouse. Participants were briefed on the security measures that we should take throughout the program and was supervised by an experienced ranger.

During the 30 minutes session,  participants, amounting to about 80 underprivilleged students from schools from all over Pahang and members of the media were briefed about the rainforest in the vicinity of Resort World Genting that has existed for over 130 million years old.

During the briefing, participants were strongly reminded not to break the plants or picking up the plants to maintain the greenery and the beauty of native plants in the forest.
