Project Overview

Raimon Land Plc Thailand, through its 2007 sponsorship agreement with PATT Foundation, expressed the desire to fund a long-term PATT initiative in the Khao Yai area of central Thailand. PATT‘s vision was to establish a nursery to provide the foundations for ongoing sustainable reforestation and community development projects in and around Khao Yai National Park. The nursery centre would also act as a training centre for local people and an environmental education facility. A few years on, the nursery has now been built, staffed and opened, however there are ongoing maintenance costs associated with the nursery and we are urgently looking for funding towards this aspect so that the valuable work in Khao Yai can continue. Please contact us or Donate now if you are interested in supporting this nursery!

Project Details

The PATT nursery is used for producing native tree seedlings to restore degraded areas of Khao Yai National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The establishment of the nursery was made possible by funding from Raimon Land PLC, a Thailand property development company with a history of support for PATT Foundation.

Ecological surveys are also being conducted to examine the existing forest and to identify important tree species to be propagated in the nursery.

The PATT Tree Nursery Project was started in August 2008, and now we have more than 15,000 seedlings of 50 native species in the nursery and nearly 90,000 seedlings have already been planted in the Khao Yai National Park area.
