A passive fence that guides elephants away from agricultural fields adjacent to Thailand’s largest national park has sharply reduced crop-raiding incidents, said conservationists from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS).
WCS released remarkable camera trap footage showing a virtual parade of Asian wildlife – tigers, elephants, sun bears, and other species – individually visiting a single, small watering hole in Thailand’s Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary.
A study by an international team of conservation scientists found that a dam built in Thailand 31 years ago has caused the local bird population to collapse.
WCS congratulates Kalyar Platt of The Turtle Survival Alliance for winning the 10th Annual John L. Behler Turtle Conservation Award. Read about Kalyar’s story in a press release from TSA.
