Thailand Wetlands

The coastal wetlands in Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park face many pressures, including conversion to aquaculture and plantations.This region includes the wetlands on the floodplains of the Chao Phraya river and its tributaries, and on the Gulf of Thailand coast. It once supported populations of large waterbirds such as Spot-billed Pelican, Giant Ibis, and Saurus Crane, but these now occur as vagrants only, not at all, mainly because their habitat has been lost.
