Introduction
Sabah is a state of Malaysia which situated in Borneo Island. It is also known as “A Land below the Wind” with lush tropical rainforests and beautiful islands teeming with an incredible diversity of eco system. Rich natural resources of Sabah, particularly Oil and Gas have made it as one of the important hydrocarbon reserve for Malaysia. The born of Sabah to the world is not just restricted to its natural resources but also on its unique geological formation and beauty of the nature. Proposed Kinabalu Geopark, in the district of Ranau, Sabah covers an area of approximately 1000 km2. The Kinabalu Park dominated by Mount Kinabalu (4,095.2m) with an area of 754 km2 is the core of the proposed geopark. It is Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. A very wide range of habitats, from rich tropical lowland and hill rainforest to tropical montane forest, to sub-alpine forest and scrub on the higher elevations can be found here. Its complex geology consists of the oldest rock in Sabah (Crystalline Basement), highly fractured and tectonised sedimentary and metamorphic rocks (Trusmadi and Wariu Formations), ophiolite suite (Chert-Spilite Formation and associated igneous rocks) and the Crocker Formation. Sabah’s Kinabalu Geopark is considered as a must visit geological area for UTP Petroleum Geoscience students to understand about anything, from the formation of Sabah to its abundant hydrocarbon reservoirs. Other than geological field trip, the participants will also involve in wetlands conservation project at Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre. This centre is managed by Sabah Wetlands Conservation Society. Our activities will include Mangrove tree planting and many more.

About American Association of Petroleum Geologists Student Chapter in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (AAPG-UTP-SC)
American Association of Petroleum Geologists or AAPG was founded in 1917 to become the pillar of world-wide scientific community. The original purposes of AAPG are to foster scientific research, advance the science of geology, promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct. Even though the codes are classic, they remain as guides for the Association today. Currently, it is the world's largest professional geological society with over 30,000 members and more than 145 student chapters. The AAPG student chapter in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (AAPG-UTP-SC) was established on early 2011. As an affiliation of prestigious AAPG, we support the purpose of AAPG through organising various geological and industrial related activities whether in or out of campus as we believe, wellrounded students should be aware and be prepared for the fast evolving of the industry and science. Furthermore, students get to develop their leadership skills and serve as a focal point in developing a sense of professionalism through meeting industry representatives. Geological field trip is one of the AAPG-UTP-SC most important activities. It makes the students understand how the past and present earth is formed and how it related to the natural resources such as energy. Last but not least, field experience is certainly the best tool to understand environmental preservation and conservation. On March 2011, we kickoff with an educational trip to Petroleum Geoscience Conference & Exhibition 2011 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre; On April 2011, we had organized “Foundation Engagement Series” to introduce Petroleum Geoscience program to the foundation students; On July 2011, we had a Technical Talk on “Marcellus Shale – Unconventional super gas play in eastern United States” by Professor Dr. D. Jeffrey Over from State University of New York; On August 2011, a Technical Talk on “Tectonic Activities in West Java” by Prof. Dr. Ir. Hasanuddin from Institute Technology of Bandung; On September 2011, a short course on “The Petroleum Industry in The Next Decade: An Overview to The Science, Technology and AAPG” by Dr. Paul Weimer, AAPG President.

Objectives of the Trip
As a society that represents Petroleum Geoscience students, our mission is to expose the students to different kind of geological formation or setting, so that it will be their invaluable knowledge in the future for their career or scientific work. Furthermore, the students can apply what they have learned in lecture room to the field work know-how. Through this geological field trip, the students also have the opportunity to adapt to the hostile environment which is crucial in today Oil and Gas industry’s working conditions. Besides, UTP well-rounded students should not only be smart academically but also tough physically. The involvement in voluntary project by Sabah Wetlands Conservation Society in Kota Kinabalu Wetland Centre is another initiative by AAPG-UTP-SC to help conserve the nature. It is our natural duty to conserve the nature while we exploit and develop the mother land. Through this field trip, we also hope students could brainstorm on ways to conserve the wetland and even conceiving ideas on their final year research project. The specific objectives that we hope to achieve are as follows: 1. To expose students to the unique Bornean geologic outcrops and landscapes. 2. To expose students to the formation of North Borneo and how it affects the Petroleum System of the area. 3. To increase students' versatility. 4. To create well rounded graduates those are capable of being on-field. 5. To conquer Mount Kinabalu – The highest Mountain in South East Asia! 6. To improve AAPG-UTP-SC members’ abilities and skills in terms of leadership, time management and event organization. 7. To help conserve the vast vulnerable wetlands area in Sabah. 8. To increase students awareness regarding Wetlands Conservation.
