Recently Bangkok Airways Public Company Limited, led by President Mr. Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, organised the CSR activity titled ‘Mangrove Conservation and Restoration with Bangkok Airways’ under the campaign of “Love Earth Save Earth.” Aimed at creating awareness in the conservation of natural resources among employees and company executives including local people, the event involved the maintenance and rehabilitation of mangrove forests which serve as a breeding ground and habitat for aquatic animals. At the event were participants such as ‘Yaya,’ Ms. Urassaya Sperbund, representatives of government agencies, airline employees, comapny management and local communities. The activity was held at Black Sand Beach and Mangrove Forest Ecotourism Centre in Trat province.
Mr. Puttipong said, “Bangkok Airways has always recognised the importance of environmental issues, especially the problem of the declining number of mangroves, which has an impact on the ecosystem. The airline therefore organised the “Mangrove Conservation and Restoration with Bangkok Airways” to provide employees and people in various communities the chance to participate in the care of nature and the environment – including the cultivation of awareness among the youth and the general public in the conservation of natural resources.”
“Bangkok Airways continuously promoted social responsibility projects, in particular ones that concern conserving and restoring natural resources. The aim is to bring on a consciousness of natural resources conservation and cherish the valuable resources of the country among employees, young people and people in communities,” added Mr. Puttipong.
The “Mangrove Conservation and Restoration with Bangkok Airways” is one of Bangkok Airways’ social responsibility programmes, bringing together the youth, the community, company employees, executives and network partners to engage in social activities. The objective provides valuable contributions toward sustainable and natural environmental preservation.
