The indigenous Tidung people from the Lower Segama Conservation Area are one of the eight communities Forever Sabah is engaging with in the Ramsar Community Group process. It is a long- term programme under Communities, Islands and Seas, to bring together communities, civil society and government in advancing governance towards a thriving wetland.
This short film was produced by the KOPEL media unit and Forever Sabah in collaboration with the communities in the Lower Kinabatangan Segama Wetlands with support from the GEF SGP Malaysia and International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The story of Kampung Dagat was chosen at this year’s Borneo Eco Film Festival, held in Suria Sabah from 6th to 8th of October 2016.
