    Exploring the Biodiverse World of Khao Yai National Park: Uncovering the Secrets of Endangered Gibbons
    The Khao Yai National Park is a part of the UNESCO world heritage site and a significant area for ecology. It helps to preserve rare and endangered wildlife and plant species. Two species of primates, the white-handed gibbon and the pileated gibbon, are inhabitants of the park. Long-term studies of gibbons in the park have been conducted since 1967 by a team of researchers. The research team has been monitoring and surveying the ecology, population, and biology of the gibbons, the diversity of flora, seed dispersal, and the relationships between different species for over 20 years. The operations are aimed towards conservation planning and preservation of endangered species.

    Solar Powered Boat to Promote Sustainable Tourism Policy
    The DASTA and Koh Mak coastal communities can benefit from solar electric boat technology transfer as a tool for tourism management and coral conservation. The solar electric boats will replace the use of motor boat fuel, eliminating carbon emissions and soot contamination from burning that can damage coral reefs. This transfer of technology can help promote sustainable tourism policies and reduce the potential for long-term environmental damage. The communities can use the solar electric boats for a variety of tourism-related activities, including recreation, sightseeing, touring, and fishing. Additionally, the solar electric boats can be used to monitor and protect coral reefs from overfishing, pollution, and other threats. These boats can also be used to create educational programs and promote environmental stewardship among local communities.
