Community Effort to Provide Water for Monkeys at Koh Koram

In response to the critical water shortage faced by the long-tailed macaques on Koh Koram, the Sam Roi Yot Tourism CSR Club and Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park have organized an initiative to provide fresh water to the island’s monkey population. The event, coinciding with the Sam Roi Yot Run “WE RUN for Sharing,” will take place on May 25, 2024.

Koh Koram, a major tourist destination in Sam Roi Yot, is home to over a hundred long-tailed macaques with distinctive black ears. During the summer months, natural fresh water sources on the island dry up, leaving the monkeys without sufficient water. To address this, Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park has annually installed water pans on the island, ensuring a continuous supply of fresh water for the macaques.

The upcoming event invites participants of the Sam Roi Yot Run to take part in this conservation effort. Runners and volunteers will gather at the Sam Roi Yot Beach sign in Talad Long Lay at 3:00 PM. From there, they will travel by boat to Koh Koram to replenish the water pans and ensure the monkeys have access to fresh water.

This initiative highlights the importance of community involvement in wildlife conservation and environmental preservation. By joining this event, participants can actively contribute to the well-being of the macaques and support the ecological balance of Sam Roi Yot.

Key officials and organizers from both the Sam Roi Yot Tourism CSR Club and Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, who have been instrumental in arranging these activities, will also be in attendance. Their ongoing dedication underscores the collaborative effort required to maintain the natural habitat and support the wildlife of Koh Koram.
