Thailand | NPs to close for a portion of each year to allow wildlife time away from tourists

The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) has announced a plan to temporarily close national parks nationwide every year even after Covid-19.

Ever since the 133 national parks were closed on March 25, more wild animals have been spotted in national parks across the country. These animals include a serow relaxing at Pha Dieo Dai Cliff, a sun bear crossing a road in Khao Yai National Park in Nakhon Ratchasima, and dozens of bottlenose dolphins swimming alongside a ranger's boat in Mu Koh Similan National Park in Phangnga. Meanwhile, a starry puffer was also spotted in Mu Koh Chang National Park in Trat. The fish is about one metre long and was last seen 13 years ago, according to a report by the national park.
