Tree Planting Day in Thailand

Yannawate Wittayakom School from Bangkok planted 40 trees (Sonneratia caseolaris Gaerth). Their comments:

"There were 33 students in grade 11 of Yannawate Wittakom School took a bus to Klonhkhon, Samutsongkram to get in to mangrove forest for tree planting. We planted 40 Sonneratia caseolaris Gaerth or 'Ton Lum Poon' as a Thai name. I thought it was different that we went to mangrove forest. We all thought that it was a really good idea to plant the trees to decrease the pollution in the air and reduce global climate change which is an issue that affected on everyone in the world. After we got back in Bangkok we have induced the project to our neighbors. We all respect in our self and everyone to planting trees to make the peaceful and our beautiful world."
