Go Eco Phuket starts eco-warrior recruitment

PHUKET: The first fifty people to contact local marine conservation group Go Eco Phuket will earn a spot at the Go Eco Camp, which plans on certifying and training islanders to be active marine conservationists.

“Go Eco camp is now open for applicants. Applications will be accepted from expats, students and locals until November,” Jirayu Naragoonphithak, the project’s coordinator, told the Phuket Gazette.

“The camp is for people who would like to learn about the conservation of marine resources and who are also interested in improving their swimming and diving abilities,” Mr Jirayu said.

The camp, which will run from November 19 to 24, plans to provide instruction in swimming, first-aid and diving. There will also be a range of government officials, private organizations and educational institutions presenting seminars and classes.

“Our overriding goal is to bring together people who cherish Phuket’s stunning marine environment and are interested in protecting it,” Mr Jirayu said.

Those wanting to take part in the camp can contact Mr Jirayu on his mobile at 084 4133-619 or by sending a message on Facebook here.
