Toong-lom Temple Grounds to be Green Tourist Attraction
On Saturday morning at Pattaya City Hall, the students of the Mangrove Upgrade Project at the Tung-lom Temple Area were taught about the ecosystem in mangrove forests. The Chairman of the Naklua Bay Conservation Group, Mr. Vet. Sugit Kaikloy, told the students that the mangroves are a critical area, revealing the condition of the environment, and if the mangrove forest is destroyed by pollution or other factors, the rest of the surroundings will definitely be ruined.
After the lecture, the students went to Tung-lom Temple for hands on learning. Their class started with rubbish collection and a clean-up of the vicinity, followed by planting mangrove trees to conserve the temple grounds for a long time.
After that, the students went to Naklua Bridge to perform the same routine for that tidewater region. This project of restoring the mangroves will create a better condition for the mangrove forest, as well as generate income for Naklua’s fishermen, as healthy mangroves also protect and nurture the marine life as well.
