New Marine Discovery Centre teams up with Koh Phi Phi's LaemTong School as part of an initiative to raise awareness of the island's environment
Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort has launched a new educational programme that will teach local schoolchildren about the critical importance of environmental preservation and sustainability.

Under this valuable new initiative, a group of 14 children, six parents and four teachers from Koh Phi Phi's LaemTong School visited the resort's new Marine Discovery Centre to learn about the island's underwater environment and meet with its resident marine biologist, Mr Kamolwat Napadolrungrueang.

During the visit, Mr Kamolwat explained all about Koh Phi Phi's vibrant marine world, the delicate balance of aquatic ecosystems, and the damaging impacts of pollution and debris. The kids were also able to feed four different species of clownfish in this educational and entertaining session.

Following this initial visit, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and its Marine Discovery Centre will welcome regular groups of children from LaemTong School. This forms part of a long-term programme to boost understanding of sustainability among local residents for generations to come.

Recently launched, the innovative Marine Discovery Centre houses a series of colourful, interactive displays that explain the life cycles and behaviours of many local marine species. This unique attraction also operates a special programme to re-introduce clownfish and bamboo sharks back into the region's waters.
