Over a sunny weekend last month, staff helped children construct their own beaks and learn about Hornbill behaviour. Parents also got involved – learning about threats to the species from climate change and the exotic pet trade.
Visitors to the booth purchased mushroom packs from FREELAND’s Khao Yai community outreach projects to grow organically at home. FREELAND’s outreach projects provide sustainable livelihood alternatives to poaching.
The Bird Conservation Society of Thailand runs bird watching trips to Khao Yai for young and old (next trip scheduled for December 21). See their website for details and other great resources on Thailand’s amazing bird life.
