Koh Ra Community Action

koh ra - conservation tour

The villagers have worked in partnership with Koh Ra Ecolodge to develop an informative village and jungle tour. A percentage of the funds from the Koh Ra Ecolodge are donated to a community fund for use on various projects including improving their freshwater supply. The villagers hope to use the freshwater for drinking and to supply a garden. The village's two meter well dries up in the dry season, leaving the villagers without an adequate source of freshwater.

Koh Ra Ecolodge hopes to raise enough funds to purchase cement culvert sections to deepen the well and a large plastic tank to store rainwater for drinking. Surplus funds will be used for plotting plants and soil.
