The campaign against Maewong Dam project was initiated by the Seub Nakhasathien Foundation when its secretary-general Sasin Chalermlarp began a protest march, walking the 388 kilometres from Mae Wong to Bangkok on September 10 – 22, 2013.

Sasin opposed with the Maewong dam project because the project will be construct at the Maewong national park which also affect the head watershed and the habitat of wildlife species especially tigers. He also explained that the Environmental and Health Impact Assessment (EHIA) report from Royal Irrigation Department (RID) lacked correct information on how the forest area and animals would be affected by this project.

Maewong National Park is part of Southeast Asia’s largest remaining forest tract, known as the Western Forest Complex which is Thailand’s first Natural World Heritage Site, the Thung Yai-Huay Kha Khaeng wildlife sanctuaries.

Healthy soil sustains your life: LET’S GO LAND-DEGRADATION NEUTRAL

The World Day to Combat Desertification is observed every year on 17 June. This year, the Day’s slogan is Healthy soil sustains your life: LET’S GO LAND-DEGRADATION NEUTRAL, said the Executive Secretary, Luc Gnacadja, when he announced the news to the press on 17 February 2012.

The world’s most significant non-renewable resource is fertile soil, which is the peel of productive land. Nevertheless, each year 12 million ha of land, the area three times the size of Switzerland, are lost due to desertification. Land degradation directly affects 1.5 billion people globally.

Special Thanks:

Jason deCaires Taylor is an internationally acclaimed eco-sculptor who creates underwater living sculptures, offering viewers mysterious, ephemeral encounters and fleeting glimmers of another world where art and life develop from the effects of nature on the efforts of man. His site-specific, permanent installations are designed to act as artificial reefs, attracting corals, increasing marine biomass and aggregating fish species, while crucially diverting tourists away from fragile natural reefs and thus providing space for natural rejuvenation. Subject to the abstract metamorphosis of the underwater environment, his works symbolize a striking symbiosis between man and nature, balancing messages of hope and loss.

Since 2006 he has created and founded two large scale underwater Museums, one on the island of Grenada in the West Indies, which has subsequently been documented as a “Wonder of the World” by National Geographic and a monumental collection of over 412 pieces in Mexico called MUSA (Museo Subaquático de Arte), now listed by Forbes as one of the world’s most unique travel destinations.
