Queen of Thailand advocates environmental protection
Here in Thailand, I am grateful to see positive action to protect the environment. The main plaza downtown is showcasing environmental issues and solutions in a large photographic story board that covers almost two blocks. A group called "Green World" paraded through town yesterday encouraging people to protect the environment. The Queen Mother of Thailand, on her birthday, encouraged people to "love each other and take care of the environment." Read more. She is especially concerned about "water and the forests." The ocean has been the focus of The Whalesong Project, but we know that what people do on land affects life in the ocean, and it's good to see people caring.
