DMCR with Chula and CIFS to Identify Sea Creatures for Conservation



BANGKOK(NNT) – The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources, Chulalongkorn University, and the Central Institute of Forensic Science have signed an academic MOU to conserve sea creatures and sustain Thailand’s seas.

The three authorities together signed an academic MOU to improve academic research and other work regarding both sea and coastal resource conservation.

Mr. Sophon Thongdee, Director-General of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources, said today that cooperation between the three authorities aims to seek the cause of death of rare sea creatures, to study abnormalities that cause them to run aground, as well as to use the study to create sustainability in Thailand’s seas.

Lieutenant Colonel Wannapong Kotcharak, the director of the Central Institute of Forensic Science, said that justice for the dead applies not only to humans but also to all creatures. They don’t only die from natural causes. On many occasions human activities are involved in the cause of death. In order to prevent such fatalities, the authorities must identify causes and prevent them happening in nature.

Meanwhile, veterinarian Rungroj Thanawongnuwech, Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Chulalongkorn University revealed that the university has long been involved in seeking the cause of death of creatures in the wild. It shows that the second leading cause of death after natural causes, is harmful human activities including use of illegal fishing equipment, and the presence of ocean waste.
