    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 18/07/2017

    » In deep jungle, a forest ranger in his black uniform slowly climbed up a tree. With trained, quick hands, he strapped a camouflage case to a high branch that could oversee an area underneath it at a wide angle. Inside the case was a camera trap that can monitor the movement of animals, and especially humans who may enter the forest illegally.

    Unshackling gentle giants

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 07/05/2018

    » After trading our sneakers for knee-length boots, we trotted down to the riverbank where a boat was waiting for us. It was a short crossing to the other side of Nam Khan River to meet the elephants that happily approached us for bananas and sugar cane. They had no chains around their ankles. The mahouts stood nearby, keeping watch with no hooks in their hands. Later, they guided the gentle giants to walk along with the humans trailing nearby on muddy ground. The atmosphere was very friendly and calm, with a picturesque landscape of jungle, river and sky surrounding us.

    For country and the world

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 21/11/2016

    » In 1965, Salakphra Wildlife Sanctuary in Kanchanaburi province became the country's first wildlife sanctuary. It is home to more than 500,000 rai of forest ground occupied by elephants, tigers, bulls and countless other species of beasts and plants. The sanctuary -- composed of dry evergreen, dry dipterocarp and mixed deciduous forest depending on the altitude -- is packed with an abundance of natural resources. Unfortunately, the sanctuary attracts intruders who try to seek profits from its abundance.

    Nature's call

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 03/05/2016

    » With steady hands and quickening steps, we carried the green sea turtles one-by-one to the beach. The turtles were flapping their flippers impatiently, as if sensing their imminent release. We placed them down carefully at the point where the waves hit the sand. Soon, the water embraced their bodies -- nature's call for them to return to their natural home. They dashed into the sea, and, after a few minutes, disappeared from our sight.

    Muse, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 14/11/2015

    » Sirinud “Bo” Kitikan, 33, carefully put a green bicycle frame on a stand. She started installing a seat and two wheels with professional ease. After some tinkering, she and her buddy-on-wheels were ready for the streets.
