The Laem Phak Bia Royal Project is located in Ban Laem in Petchaburi province. HM King Bhumipol Adulyadej initiated the project to treat both wastewater and solid waste through environmentally and ecologically sustainable methods. A pumping station in Phetchaburi city 18.5km away, feeds wastewater to Laem Phak Bia through a pipeline. This has created a 1-sq-km freshwater oasis among the surrounding expanse of brackish saltpans. It makes this a rich feeding area for water birds and insectivorous land birds, including many that are migrants from northern Asia, together with some other animals such as monitor lizard.The project has not only reduced pollution, but also provided nature lovers, birdwatchers and photographers a chance to get close to some of Thailand’s remarkable endangered birds and ecosystems.
