Episode Three: Community-Based Tourism and Mangroves

Posted by on July 6, 2012

GREEN RIDERS are back in town. Or in the village. Kok Krai village, Krabi province, Thailand to be precise. To learn about the choices the community has made to develop a local ecotourism model, instead of cutting back the mangroves to build resorts like so many villages in the region. We learn abou this project from our host Ibrahim, enjoy taking part in community activities, and visit the mangroves of Krabi in the early morning to learn about its rich biodiversity and spot some of the creatures that call it home. Enjoy!
