Student of Bhuti-Rangsi Pibul school touch an elephant of the Greenpeace-led Chang(e) Caravan at Bhuti-Rangsi School in Chacheongsoa Province, around 100 kilometers North of Bangkok. The activity is part of the province's Rehabilitate and protect the Bangpakong River Basin event. Bangpakong River Basinีs watershed provides water for irrigation, agriculture, drinking and industrial uses. A recent poll commissioned by WWF, Greenpeace Southeast Asia and 350.org to support the Tcktcktck campaign revealed that among the serious impacts of climate change, Asians are most worried about water shortage. The Greenpeace Chang(e) Caravan is a 15-day people's caravan for change with elephants rehabilitated by the Thai Elephant Research and Conservation Fund (TERF), which will pass through climate change impacted areas of Thailand and end on September 27, a day before the start of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change intercessional meeting in the capital.
