LOCAL SUSTAINABILITY ON PHI PHI
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.
