    Keeping a Tradition

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 27/02/2012

    » One sunny day a boy and a long-horned water buffalo were cooling off in a muddy pond at Wat Phra Non Chaksi's Thai Buffaloes Conservation Centre in Sing Buri province, while his two friends watched on. The boys flashed broad smiles and waved at a group of visitors from Bangkok who had come observe the animals and their way of life. The centre was set up in 2000 by Wat Phra Non Chaksi and Sing Buri Rotary Club. It takes care of water buffaloes rescued from slaughterhouses or donated by people, and lends them to needy farmers. The objective is two-fold: to educate the new generation about the traditional role of water buffaloes in farming, and honour the animal on which the heroes of Bang Rachan rode to battle against invaders from Myanmar. Each day scores of tourists visit this centre to observe the buffaloes, feed them grass and watch shows in which the animals demonstrate their agility, free of charge. Donations are welcome to support the centre's conservation work.
