Thailand observes World Environment Day

BANGKOK, June 5 (TNA) - As previous years, Thailand observes the World Environment Day, which falls on every June 5, by organising relevant activities in several areas, including reforestation and garbage management. In Phichit Province in the Lower Thai North, for instance, Governor Surachai Khan-asa led local people to plant saplings to increase green areas and to restore the rich environment in their communities. About 100,000 saplings were distributed to locals to plant them at their communities and at the hillside of the Phanompa Mountain Range. In Bueng Kan Province in the Thai Northeast, the provincial Buddhism office and other relevant agencies also organised tree plantation activities on 60-acre forest areas retrieved by encroachment, in which hundreds of monks, teachers and students participated. In Pattani Province in the Thai Far South, a campaigning activity was organised in front of Provincial Hall by the provincial natural resources and environment office to promote public participation in proper garbage management for the sake of good environment.
