Forestry Conservation. The aim of this program is to learn from and work with park rangers to conserve Khao Yai National Park. Deforestation here has not occurred since the mid-90s and the efforts to replant trees and preserve the wildlife are still ongoing, you can play a part in this process!
Your tasks may vary depending on the season as well as the projects the rangers are undertaking. For example, the beginning of the rainy season is the best time for planting trees (to help restore areas of the park that have been cleared out in the past by deforestation or forest fires). Alternatively, the best time to salt the soil is during the dry season (to help bait the animals into staying within the park boundaries and provide a valuable mineral for their diet).
Aside from doing hard work, you will also get to explore Khao Yai through visits to different locations such as a waterfall, stunning viewing points, and more!
Khao Yai National Park
Khao Yai National Park is located in the western part of the Sankamphaeng Mountain Range and spreads over several provinces in Central Thailand. Khao Yai accommodates over 3,000 species of plants, 32 species of birds and 66 species of mammals, including gibbons, deers, bears, elephants and even tigers. Aside from the fascinating biodiversity, the park also contains jaw-dropping waterfalls such as Heo Suwat (which appears in the famous film “The Beach”) as well as spectacular mountains.
