THE DEMISE OF LAMAI’S BEAUTIFUL SWAMP

The first photo is of the sign on the edge of Lamai’s swamp.   I’ve been told that it translates into English as “NO TIPPING – 5,000 BT FINE”.
swamp1The second photo is of a lorry tipping rubbish in the swamp this morning!

As well as the wild-life disappearing, we often see young Thai boys fishing for eels & small fish, that activity will come to an end as the water goes.
As will the gathering of Morning Glory by some of the village ladies, this is a very healthy vegetable & it grows in abundance in the swamp.

The rubbish being tipped here is also a breeding ground for UFI’s (unidentified flying insects), I nearly always have a couple of windows open & often get joined by very small insects that I’ve never seen before.

swamp2I’d like to thank the many people who are showing their support for what I consider to be a crime.    If the fluids which are leaking from all this rubbish gets into the water table, all the houses, restaurants & hotels in this area, will have major problems, health being number 1.

Des Gillet, Lamai.
