ISSP [2024] : Developing Sustainable Tourism in Klong Ta In, Thailand

The organization Patcharasuta Kachanurak and the agricultural village Klong Ta In are working together to encourage co-living between humans and wild elephants. A task force was created in Klong Ta In to deter these elephants as a result of their livelihood being at stake. However, the task force needs supplemental funding for maintenance costs and the villagers for crop loss. Through research, observations, and interviews, our group created a feasible and sustainable tourism package for the village to create this revenue.
