Beer, Books & Bears

Today we have the privilege of hosting an incredibly accomplished woman and showcasing the heart-warming film BEARTREK.
Sarah Pye is not only an extraordinary author, but a local woman who lives life to the fullest. She is an inspiration in her thirst for adventure and drive to make a difference. Sarah will be talking about how Malaysian biologist Dr Wong Siew Te inspired her to write “Saving Sun Bears – One Man’s Quest to Save a Species”. Sarah is happy to answer questions and personally sign copies of the book.
Then meet Dr Wong in the cinematic documentary BEARTREK which follows fellow conservationist and bear ecologist, Chris Morgan as he journey’s around the world learning about bears, including the elusive sun bear. Watch the trailer here.
Entry is by donation, with proceeds going to Dr Wong and the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre. Your donation also gives you chance to win a range of exciting door prizes
