Marine Protection Group Requested By Go Eco Phuket

Go Eco Phuket, a local conservation group, has already sent a petition to the Phuket government to create a task force that will handle the marine protection in the island. The request came after they saw that officials are not planning to take action. Go Eco Phuket addressed the petition to NorraphatPlodthong, the governor of the island. It was received by the Office of the Ombudsman at Damrongdhama Center which is located inside the Provincial Hall. The conservation group believes that the marine life in private spa resort in Phuket as well as the other tourist spots in the island should be taken care of.

IttiputSchadt, the secretary of Go Eco Phuket, said that they contacted officials as well as the local police to take action after photo was taken of a diver sitting over a coral but no actions. No charges were filed against the male diver because, according to them, they do not have sufficient evidence.

This is not the only case as there are many cases that failed after submitting to them while many others are still pending. He added that they find it hard to cooperate with officials when it comes to preserving the marine environment.

Mr. Ittiput emphasized that they have exerted a lot of efforts already and it has come to a point where the governor of Phuket, NorraphatPlodthong, should know about the issues.

They are demanding that the government should develop a group of officials coming from various departments such as Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command, Tourism Business and Guide Registration Office, Phuket Marine Office, Go Eco Phuket, Marine Police, Department of Marine and Coastal Resources and Labour Office should be organizes in order to handle cases involving marine preservation.

Mr. Ittiput said that they have been operating for five years to protect marine life close to private spa resort in Phuket and other resorts in the island but they also require support. He reminded the officials about their duties of protecting the forest as well as the environment as per the orders from the National Council for Peace and Order.

Reno Pest Specialist Uses Birds

There are many pests in the house that requires the attention of a professional such as pest control in Newcastle but one of the hardest to get rid of is pest birds that are using the property, either residential or commercial, as their nesting place. They are not only making a big mess but they are also the reason for damages. For someone who is not an expert in pest control, getting rid of them might not be easy. This is not the case with Michael Beran, a master falconer, who believed that the best way to get rid of birds is to get more of them.

It is common to see Beran along with Corey Dalton, his friend, as they take out Sky, the Harris hawk owned by Dalton. They bring her out to explore the open desert known as the Spanish Springs.

Dalton said that the exercise is very similar to people who are taking their dogs for their daily walks.

It is the nature of Sky in the wild to be a predator because their species is designed that way. It is obvious to see as she is fond of sending fear to a group of local rabbit. This is the reason why she, along with different birds of prey in the wild, can be utilized as pest control.

Beran said that it is common to see pest birds that are very scared of hawks as well as falcons. The method has proven to be very effective.

He added that using a predatory bird to ward off pest birds is more effective compared to employing a poison or spike strip, not the mention the favourite weapon by many whensolving pest bird issues – air rifle. The predator birds can scare various bird pests such as sparrows, pigeons and starlings. The good news is that they are not harming them in any way. The presence of a predator will motivate the birds to build a new nest somewhere else.

While this method might not be common to pest control in Newcastle, it is good in scaring pests without hurting them because they still play an important role in the ecosystem.

Chuvit Garden In Sukhumvit To Make Way For A Mall

Bangkok is already packed with shopping centers and retails and office spaces such as Interchange 21 but projects are still cropping up here and there. In fact, a pocket park located downtown will be paved to make way for a commercial property. A former politician owns the park and he was previously sentenced to jail because he demolished the businesses of his former tenants.

The private park is known as ChuvitGarden which is located in SoiSukhumvit 10. The owner is ChuvitKamolvisit, who used to be a politician but ventured into being a talk show host. The small park is now leased to Land and Houses Co Ltd. The developer said that they are planning to construct a mixed-used commercial building.

The chairman of the board of directors of the developer is NapornSunthornchitcharoen and he announced that this February they are going to sign a lease for the land which will last for 30 years.

Chuvit presented the park to the public as a gift but in 2016 the gates were already locked with a sign explaining that the place is under renovation. He added that the deal is not yet done.

He admitted that he wasn’t looking for buyers but they keep coming to him with offers and he confirmed that he will not sell it but a lease might be possible. As of last week, he denied of any contract being signed.

When questioned regarding the closure despite his announcement that it was a gift to the public, he said that he has given them enough time and the place needed a renovation.

Land and House said that they are going to construct retail space of 3,000 square meters, 400 hotel rooms and an office space of 20,000 square meters similar to Interchange 21 which is also located in Sukhumvit. The project is estimated to be worth 6 billion baht and construction will start in 2019.
