Mr. Mana Permpoon, the head of Kaeng Krachan National Park, has revealed that Kaeng Krachan National Park has cooperated with Silpakorn University to organise a nature reserve camp at Ban Krang during the closure of Kaeng Krachan National Park.
This closure was due to rain water damage and preparations to improve the route for a future launch. The camp focused on environmental issues in line with the policy of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation to reduce the amount of one time use plastic in the national park.
The youths who came to the camp needed to bring their own water bottles and food containers. The camp focused on reducing the amount of waste generated during a visit to the national park and preventing wildlife from ingesting plastic debris. This activity was held for the first time in Kaeng Krachan National Park as a model for future visitors.
