Detail
 
Established in 1965, Salakpra was Thailand's first wildlife sanctuary, created to protect a rich forest fauna close to Bangkok and the famous River Kwai. Over the years, it has been diminished and abused through official neglect and a growing human population around its much altered, still uncertain boundary. As a result, Salakpra is now a badly damaged, peninsula arm of WEFCOM, home to shockingly few wild animals other than 130-150 elephants whose forest home is degrading every day at the hands of local people and outsiders exploiting it for free. Once a symbol of Thai pride, it is now a symbol of shame.

History
 
Salakpra needs help to avoid becoming an ecological wasteland of limited biological value. It is badly damaged, more so in some areas than others, but it is not yet dead. It can recover, given the chance, but who cares enough to help? Salakpra is too small and too ordinary to excite national or international attention for its biodiversity attributes, but it is valuable to Kanchanaburi, especially to those who live around it, for its forest products and ecosystem services. The Department of National Parks has the mandate to care for it but cannot do so without political will, local support, technical skills, and adequate resources. Local people have the will, for their own sake, but no rights, responsibilities, or resources. Local government has resources but no mandate or political will.
