The Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) evolved from small, cozy environmental education (EE) centre in 1996 into one of Sabah's most popular EE centres. It is a within the famous Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve, home of the orang utans at the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. The RDC is managed by the Sabah Forestry Department.Although the main purpose of the RDC remains as an environmental education centre for students and teachers, it has opened its doors to the public since August 2007. It is now opened daily from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm. Together with the nearby Sepilok Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre, it is hoped that the RDC will help boost the tourism industry in the Sandakan district.All proceeds from ticket sales will be used to sustain our centre so that we can continue to organise EE programmes for students, teacher training courses and other environment-related activities. If you visit the RDC during weekends, you will most likely see school children being guided around the Exhibition Hall by our education staff and elsewhere for that matter.
