ASEAN designated Thailand’s Two National Park as ASEAN Heritage Parks

The ASEAN Heritage Parks are described as “protected areas of high conservation importance that together, preserve a complete spectrum of ecosystems representative of the ASEAN region”. The preserved areas to be announced as ASEAN Heritage Parks will be nominated by the government of each country and be evaluated by the ASEAN member countries.

During the meeting (15th ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on the Environment), the Ministers approved the nominations of two protected areas in Thailand; namely, Hat Chao Mai National Park and Mu Ko Libong Non-hunting Area which gained the position of 45th and 46th park this year.
