Environmental education for rural children, many from families involved in unsustainable poaching and forest encroachment, in order to develop future conservationists.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Population pressures and lack of employment opportunities in rural Thailand are motivating poaching of wildlife and clearing of remaining habitat. These unsustainable activities are damaging ecosystems and affecting fresh water supplies and agriculture. Most people are unaware of the long-term impacts of these activities and alternatives that will allow them to live in harmony with the forest and support their families.

How will this project solve this problem?

By exciting and teaching students to care about endangered species and the role they play in healthy ecosystems, this project will help change community attitudes in the immediate and long-term encouraging a sustainable relationship with the forest.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project aims to develop a future generation of conservationists in rural Thai communities.
