Bangkachao is a large green space on Chao Phraya River opposite of Bangkok, providing fresh air to the city. Recent unscrupulous development trends, however, have threatened the well-being of this precious oasis. Measures must be taken to ensure that this unique ecosystem and communities that once co-existed side by side are preserved. Big Trees Project and other partner organizations such as Rak Koong Bangkachao Group, have carried out projects supported by Thai Health Organization namely the Bangkachao Master Plan Project which will serve as land use and development guidelines; the local history project that pieces together community history and traditions; the Bangkachao Photo Project that raises awareness of Bangkachao environment by presenting a collection of outstanding photographs, taken by local photographers; the environmental awareness campaign through physical activities combining cycling and waste management by volunteers and locals. We especially focus on waste management because Bangkachao is right on the river which brings both heavy boat traffic as well as garbage. We therefore need more effective ways to handle the garbage problem through a campaign called Bangkachao Green Ranger to encourage local communities to manage this problem by themself and make use of the garbage collected.
