About 100 Sattahip-area students planted mangrove trees and learned how to protect nature at a Khet Udomsak environmental youth camp.

Deputy Mayor Suphachai Nimanong opened the camp for pupils from Khaokhunmaath School Aug. 16 at the Royal Thai Marine Corps’ Reconnaissance Battalion headquarters. The camp’s aim was to increase awareness about the importance of natural resources and recognize the problems facing the environment.

“Thailand is filled with diverse and beautiful natural resources  and they are the main attractions for tourists,” Suphachai said. “But today, these resources are deteriorating due to the imbalance in nature caused by humans. Therefore, it is the duty of all citizens to protect and conserve nature, starting with raising awareness and realizing the value of natural resources as well as the consequences of destroying the environment.”

The students and city workers together planted 50 mangrove trees in the marshes at the Reconnaissance Battalion to wrap up the “Do Good for Earth” camp.
