Upper Secondary Field Trip to Mangrove Forest Conservation Center

July 26, 2018

On July 25, all upper-year ACEP Secondary students (Years 10-12) participated in a field trip to the Mangrove Forest Conservation Center in Samut Songkhram.

With His Majesty the King’s birthday approaching, the students were glad to contribute to Thai society in a positive way, by participating in the Center’s efforts to preserve and increase the population of mangrove forests along the northern coast of the Gulf of Thailand. In an era of global climate change, these forests play a vital role in preventing the erosion of the coastlines in tidal estuaries such as those found along the northern shore of the Gulf of Thailand.

The most direct way to promote these forests is to plant more mangrove trees – and that’s exactly what our students did. This involves trudging through a field of knee-deep mud at low tide, and they seemed to thoroughly enjoy getting as wet and muddy as possible!

After the tree-planting was done, the students were taken in longtail boats to survey a mussel farm offshore from the forest, which consisted of a breathtaking lattice of piles and poles covered in shellfish, which would later be harvested.

On the way back, the longtail boats stopped in a quiet, shallow zone where some daring students, teachers, and even Brothers gave a try at waterskiing, with their friends cheering them on!

The students continued the return journey, throwing pieces of fresh coconut to the waiting monkeys on the banks of the canal. Then they arrived at the Center’s office where they dried off and devoured a delicious fresh seafood lunch.

Finally, they visited Wat Ban Laem, where many students made offerings, and the famous Maeklong Railway Market in Samut Songkhram, where they strolled and bought snacks and souvenirs.

This field trip allowed our students to give back to their natural environment, commune with nature, see new sights, have a lot of fun, and get really dirty. It was a great trip.

Don’t forget to check out the special jumbo-sized photo gallery below. Special thanks to our student photographers, Rachapol (12/1) and Nutcha (11/2) for working hard to capture some fantastic shots!
