Rainy season reforestation preparations underway

Preparations for reforestation plantings around Khao Yai this rainy season have already begun. This photo, taken by FREELAND field officer Sayan, shows workers busy in the large seedling nursery:

Areas close to Khao Yai’s borders, where encroachment has damaged the forest, will be selected by park authorities for reforestation. Tree planting in the rainy season (May-June) gives saplings the best chance to survive and grow, thanks to reliably high rainfalls.

With generous support from The Foundation, FREELAND’s reforestation work in Khao Yai is helping the fight against global warming and reclaiming lost habitat for wildlife.
