During the visit, Mr Kamolwat explained all about Koh Phi Phiís 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 the 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 regionís waters.
