The Thai Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) will organise activities during December 26-29 to celebrate the Wildlife Conservation Day.

According to Teerapat Prayurasiddhi, Deputy Director General of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP), the activities, under the theme of “Stop consuming, Stop hunting, and Stop smuggling”, aim to preserve the wildlife such as elephants, tigers, snakes, tortoises, and armadillos, whose lives have been threatened by the presence of human beings.

As many as 642 cases of wildlife smuggling have been reported so far this year, said the deputy director.

The activities include a campaign to protect wildlife, an exhibition depicting the King’s and Queen’s roles in protecting the wildlife, and animal shows, as well as other performances.-VNA
