Introduction
An effort to help bring more awareness to National Parks and Sustainable Tourism in Thailand
About this Map

Coming to the of Thailand's National Park Year we produced this map because we feel that you should know the current state of Thailand's remaining forests.

This map is to be published annually and your recommendations just may be listed on the next publication.

Thailand's National Park Green Map was published in January 2001, and this remote sensing aerial photo map covered the widest area of any Green Map to date! With text in both Thai and English, many interesting details about the country's parks and natural heritage are highlighted. A student competition was held to design the cover. There were 152,000 copies of the map (both folding maps and posters) published and distributed to schools, in the Sunday Bangkok Post, to new car owners, and through tourist information. In 2002, even more copies were distributed! This project is led by David Tarrant, eco-tourism specialist with Project Eco Co. Ltd., along with several supporters and the Thai Green Network Foundation. The draft version was presented to the public at the World Environment Day Exhibition at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre on June 5, 2000.

In July 2002, this project sponsored workshops and meetings coinciding with a visit from Green Map System's director and education outreach specialist. 30 eco-educators gathered to discuss potential new projects.

In 2005, Thailand Environment Institute took on the project - marvelous things have happened!
