List of Protected Areas in Thailand

protected areas in thailand


Have you ever wondered how many protected areas there are in Thailand? I did. So with the help of WikiPedia I decided to list them all out and number them. And what a revelation it is. It just goes to show how committed Thailand is/was in setting up its National Parks and protected areas which have been established in existing wilderness areas since 1962. It also shows the massive task that Thailand's Department of Nartional Parks must manage and care for. 

Its a national heritage of immense proportions, held in perpetuity for generations of Thai's to come.
