Phi Phi Is­land Vil­lage Beach Re­sort has kicked off a long-term ini­tia­tive to boost sus­tain­abil­ity ed­u­ca­tion for lo­cal school chil­dren. The pro­gram is de­signed to en­gage lo­cal fam­i­lies in en­vi­ron­men­tal care and pro­vide in­for­ma­tion that will then trickle down to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. The first group of chil­dren, along­side teach­ers and par­ents, from Koh Phi Phi’s Laem Tong School have made their visit to the re­sort’s new Ma­rine Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre and met with res­i­dent bi­ol­o­gist Mr Kamol­wat Na­padoirun­grueang to dis­cuss en­vi­ron­men­tal preser­va­tion. Colour­ful in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays were used to fa­cil­i­tate con­ver­sa­tion about the del­i­cate bal­ance of aquatic ecosys­tems and the dam­ag­ing im­pact of pol­lu­tion and de­bris. The chil­dren were also en­cour­aged to feed four dif­fer­ent types of clown­fish as part of the cen­tre’s ded­i­ca­tion to rein­tro­duc­ing clown­fish back into their nat­u­ral habi­tats.

The visit marks the first of many that the chil­dren from Laem Tong School will make.
