Environmental Conservation in Thailand

Working at Local Mangrove Nursery
    Overview icon

    Overview

    Welcome to Hua Hin, a spectacular city that boasts one of Thailand’s most popular beach destinations for locals and Expats alike. Your program here as a keen environmentalist will start with a visit to a local Mangrove Ecosystem Learning Centre where you will foremostly take part in many discussions regarding the awareness of Thailand’s deep environmental issues.

    In this endeavour, you will work at a local mangrove nursery for 2 hours starting from 9:30 to 11:30. This placement is the main nursery that produces young mangrove plants for the local community. Your responsibilities may involve preparing the seed and soil, watering the plant, nursing the plant and planting the mangroves. A local farmer and coordinator will be there to provide knowledge and show participants step by step from how/where to collect and sort mangrove pods to all the tips that they need to know about how to plant and nurse mangrove adequately.

    In addition to meaningful hands-on work to improve the sustainability of the community, such as cleaning up beaches or local communities, creating garbage bins, washing and sorting garbage, you will also be heavily engaged in the learning aspect of researching, planning and educating the local community members and children with regards to the importance of sustainable environmental practices. In order to create awareness and encourage environmental conservation among local people and students, you will be presenting them lectures and training sessions on practical topics such as recycling in the home, reducing one’s carbon footprint, how to separate waste properly, broader topics like the effects of climate change and the need for environmental concern. An English-speaking coordinator will be there to support and help you out with any language barriers.

    Objectives

    • To educate younger generations on the importance of environmental conservation
    • To increase community awareness of environmental concerns
    • Assist the community project staff by providing an extra hand
