This year, NSM has cooperated Chumpot-Pantip Foundation to arrange the Junior Naturalist on November 11th at Wang Takhrait National Park, Nakhon Nayok. We have 50 young people participate in the project to learn and investigate natural organisms with NSM naturalists working in the areas of plants, fish, insects, reptiles, and other physical factors. The project has inspired them to have more attention to natural history in the future.”
