THAILAND: Agencies to clean up parks with litter plan

Tourists will be encouraged to visit national parks on week days and take their garbage with them when they leave

OFFICIALS plan to tackle the excessive amount of litter at national parks by implementing garbage disposal measures and limiting the number of tourists during holiday periods.

Witthaya Navapramod, director of the National Parks Office, said the National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department acknowledges the garbage problem in national parks and has come up with projects to reduce and recycle garbage at sites where there are problems.

The Department of Health had earlier reported an overwhelming amount of garbage at national parks and other tourist destinations. Some top attractions, such as Doi Inthanon National Park, accumulated many tonnes of garbage during the New Year holiday last year.

The Thai people, generally spoken, are very nonchalant and dump their rubbish everywhere around as long as it not their own house. The education should start already with the children!
