Building the future of Thailand’s Conservation
The students went through a six-day training, during which time they learned through firsthand experience how to trace footprints of wildlife, look out for threats, use camera traps, collect data, and the other basics of SMART patrolling. After the indoor training, the students - under the supervision of faculty staff - got to practice their new skills in real surroundings while accompanying forest rangers for two nights of live smart patrolling. The students returned with an unforgettable experience filled with knowledge, adventure, fun and a promise to serve, save and sustain Thailand’s ecosystems and biodiversity.
As for Khlong Lan and Mae Wong National Parks, these protected areas continue to be of significant importance for the future of Tigers in Thailand.
