Team­work was key

Bangkok Post - - OPINION -

The suc­cess of the rescue of the 13 cave­trapped foot­ballers will live on in minds and may be a leg­end that peo­ple will speak about for many years to come. He­roes liv­ing and dead will be re­mem­bered for sure and we have to re­spect them for how they ex­pended great ef­forts to bail out those vic­tims from their cave cap­tiv­ity. There are now plans to build a mu­seum and per­haps make a film about the suc­cess­ful rescue mis­sion.

One fur­ther step we must mull, and for sure take, is to hone the same multi­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion and ini­tia­tives to evolve en­vi­ron­men­tal preser­va­tion and sus­te­nance of wildlife sys­tems. The cave saga con­fronted us with the real and heart-wrench­ing dan­ger of 13 lives en­trenched in dan­ger. The re­sult of con­certed ef­forts proved to be re­ally heroic. Global cli­mate change and en­vi­ron­men­tal degra­da­tion is some­thing more mam­moth, re­quir­ing us to hold to­gether and fight to save our com­mon home, Planet Earth.
