SEMPORNA – Voluntourism may be the next new tourism product for Sabah.

“Tourists not only come here to see Sabah’s natural beauty but also to serve as volunteers in conservation of the habitat or coral reefs,” said Malaysian Tourism and Culture Ministry, Sabah director Awang Ahmad Zaki Abu Bakar at the ‘1Voluntourism End In Sipadan Bum-Bum Artificial Reefs’ media conference here today.

He said the product could be seriously developed through voluntourism in conservation of macro marine life in Sabah as the state had many attractive diving spots.

Meanwhile, he said the ministry’s Sabah office was also making efforts to promote macro diving activities in the state as the diving industry is among the main contributors to tourism and the local community’s economy.
