RLTT Members Cooperated with Wildlife Conservation Activities
ROHM LSI Technology (Thailand) ("RLTT"), a development base in Thailand, carried out wildlife conservation activities in Khao Yai National Park, 120 km northeast of Bangkok, on April 20 (Sat.), 2019. In Thailand, urbanization is advancing and wildlife habitats are shrinking. In addition, nutritional minerals are essential for herbivorous animals, and the dwindling number of places where they can supplement minerals in their diets is a serious life-threatening problem. This is the result of human influence on natural ecosystems, and it is an issue that we must solve ourselves.
During these activities, we created a mineral supplementation site, called a "pong" in Thai, where minerals are buried in the ground in imitation of natural conditions.
Volunteers were recruited at RLTT, and 45 people, more than half of all employees, participated in the conservation activities. April is the hottest month of the year, and it was hard work for a long time under the scorching sun, but we plowed up the hard, dry soil and made six "pongs." All participating employees felt they were able to contribute to creation of an environment where wildlife and people coexist, and to understand the importance of environmental protection.
Moving forward, the ROHM Group will continue to contribute to global environmental protection through activities like these. (ROHM LSI Technology (Thailand))
