To Reduce Demand for Wildlife Products
USAID collaborated with the International Network of Engaged Buddhist (INEB) to increase spiritual leaders’, in this case Buddhist monks, nuns, and interested laypersons, awareness and activities supporting reducing the demand for wildlife products. They initially proposed to offer three workshops conducted in person. However, due to the COVID-19 situation the first 2 workshops were conducted in person, and the final seminar took place online via Zoom and Facebook Live. The first workshop took place at Wat Chakdaeng in Bangkok on October 21, 2020, followed by the second workshop at the Psychiatric Hospital in Phitsanulok province on March 13, 2021, with the final seminar taking place on July 16, 2021. This reportis of the final seminar on July 16, 2020, which was a collaboration between USAID Wild Asia, INEB, Sekhiya Dhamma Group, IBHAP, Wat Saket Ratcha Wora Maha Wihan in Bangkok, WildAid Thailand, and the Thai Department of National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP).
