Natural Resources and Environment Minister General Surasak Karnjanarat appointed volunteer marine rangers for six coastal Andaman provinces on Friday.

The provinces are: Trang, Phang Nga, Krabi, Phuket, Satun, and Ranong. 

He officially handed marine ranger badges to the volunteers as he met with the Network for Participation-based Management of Marine Resources, which comprises communities from the Andaman provinces. 

The network discussed local problems and proposed solutions during the meeting with Surasak. 

Among the five demands from the network were for the government to organise public forums to gather opinions on how to manage mangrove forests, to review all plans to expand wildlife sanctuaries, and to officially establish the Andaman Conservation Network Association.

Surasak promised to consider their demands.
