ACEP Biology Field Trip – Day 2

Thursday, January 10, 2019

During day 2 of the ACEP Biology Field Trip the students visited the local forest and grasslands in the National Park. After a short hike, they carried out a belt transect to study how the species of plants changed between the grassland and the forest, and how this was linked to the amount of light in each area.

In the afternoon, the students completed a survey to estimate the population of elephants in the area. This was done by measuring the size of elephant dung and assessing how old it was, which is one of the techniques the park rangers use here in Khao Yai. A very different experience to a normal day at ACEP!

Afterwards, we completed another short hike through the forest to observe the beautiful scenery, and some of the interesting plant species that the rest of the animals rely on for food.

It was a very busy, but fun day for the students!
