Blue Carbon Society signed a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) and the Rajamangala University of Technology Srivijaya Trang Campus to set up the research institute for rare marine animals.
Dr. Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp, President of Blue Carbon Society, said that the association has been in discussions with the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources after the loss of the dugong Mariam in 2019.
“Setting up a research institute to conserve dugongs and rare marine animals is a comprehensive response across all dimensions with partners who share our views and values,” he said.
“Blue Carbon Society will work with DMCR to design the project, giving budget support and overseeing construction of the project’s buildings and utilities, including support for providing core equipment.”
The signing ceremony at Thumrin Thana Hotel featured representatives of government agencies and businesses, marine protection volunteers, students, media, and local people, with a total of over 1,000 attendees.
Dr. Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp set up Blue Carbon Society with Mrs. Thippaporn Ahriyavraromp, its Vice President and the Chairman of the Executive Committee of DTGO.
DTGO is among the supporters of the foundation, which is named after the carbon in coastal and marine ecosystems whose conservation is vital to tackling global climate change.
