You may have read in yesterday’s Bangkok Post that hundreds of animals have died at the Night Safari due to a lack of knowledge of how to care for them and the fact that they don’t belong in Thailand!!
I had a call this morning from Nikom Putta, who is mentioned in the article. Nikom is an Ashoka Fellow and works on community forestry, the mighty Ping River and, animal trading. He told me that tomorrow at 10 a.m. there will be a group gathering at the Night Safari to protest the mistreatment of animals. I know some of you have been very active in addressing the problem of stray dogs and dog population.
Please call Nikom for more information: 0819926031
And feel free to spread this message to animal activists.
(I’m reading Water for Elephants right now, which feels relevant to the issues Nikom is raising)
