The Environmental Education Centre (ECC) talks about the importance of preserving nature in “Fighting Extinction Day” taking place tomorrow (April 2) at Toyota Imax Theatre on the fourth floor of The Waterfall Quartier from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

The EEC offers camps for children all over the world and aims to educate them by giving them new experiences and opportunities to interact with nature, creating an understanding for the methods and importance of natural conservation as well as the ecological relationship between different living creatures.

“Fighting Extinction Day” is part of the Fighting Extinction Project, which encourages children and youth to learn about Thailand’s endangered species. Speakers include Thai environmentalist Dr Surapol Duangkae, Dr Boripat Siriaunrat, head of the Thailand panda research project, Petch Manopawitr, deputy head of IUCN Southeast Asia Group, and Brendan Rogers, the first resident ambassador of Ireland to Thailand who will raise awareness about such endangered animals as the goral, kitti’s hog-nosed bat, dugong, leatherback sea turtle and whale shark.
