“The Eyes of Thailand” Named as a Finalist in the First International Elephant Film Festival

“The Eyes of Thailand” tells the true and inspirational story of Soraida Salwala’s quest to help two elephant landmine survivors—Motala and Mosha—walk again on their own four legs. Treating their wounds was only part of the journey; building elephant-sized prostheses was another. Narrated by Ashley Judd, the film is story of sacrifice and perseverance that show how far one woman will go to save an endangered species from threats above and below the surface.

This announcement marks the second time the United Nations has honored “The Eyes of Thailand”. The first was at a Special Screening at the International Convention to Ban Landmines in Geneva, Switzerland in December 2016.

On 20 December 2017, the Sixty-eighth session of the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 3 March as World Wildlife Day to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild fauna and flora. The date is the day of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1973, which plays an important role in ensuring that international trade does not threaten the species’ survival. World Wildlife Day is an opportunity to celebrate the many beautiful and varied forms of wild fauna and flora and to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits that conservation provides to people. At the same time, the Day reminds us of the urgent need to step up the fight against wildlife crime, which has wide-ranging economic, environmental and social impacts.

About Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival
Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival’s programs promote public awareness and stewardship of wildlife and wildlife habitat through the innovative use of media from Hanoi to Halong Bay. Since 1991, its annual conferences draw together international leaders in science, conservation, broadcasting and media. For three days this year, committed elephant advocates convened for the Jackson Hole Conservation Summit: Elephants to share resources and strategies, address critical challenges and brainstorm innovative approaches for collaboration. They joined 650+ of the world’s most influential filmmakers and commissioners at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival to celebrate the world’s finest nature programming and explore innovative ways to integrate media centrally into the battle against global wildlife crime.

With 182 Parties, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) remains one of the world’s most powerful tools for wildlife conservation through the regulation of trade. Thousands of species are internationally traded and used by people in their daily lives for food, health care, housing, tourist souvenirs, cosmetics or fashion. CITES regulates international trade in over 35,000 species of plants and animals, including their products and derivatives, to ensure their survival in the wild with benefits for the livelihoods of local people and the global environment. The CITES permit system seeks to ensure that international trade in listed species is sustainable, legal and traceable. CITES was signed in Washington D.C. on 3 March 1973 and entered into force on 1 July 1975. Learn more about CITES by visiting www.cites.org

Thailand is a truly wonderful place and a great destination for holidays – thousands of tourists go there each year to experience the sights, sounds and culture of Thailand, including the food.

Thailand holidays are truly unforgettable, and are made even better by the huge range of different foods that are on offer. We have compiled a list for you of the top ten dishes that you absolutely have to try if you are considering Thailand holidays, so read and enjoy…

The first dish to try is simply stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts. While this may sound a little odd, it is an absolutely exquisite dish, one that you really have to try to see the difference. It may seem like a normal dish, but upon tasting it you will see it is far from it. The second to take a look at is fried spring roll. Again this may not seem exotic and foreign, but it makes for a great appetizer, one which can really whet your appetite for the meal to come, making for a delicious, non-spicy starter. Thirdly we have ‘Panaeng’, a meat dish in spicy coconut cream. This certainly is one of the more exotic and odd dishes to try, and even if it sounds a bit odd you certainly must taste it and see what you think, to really get the Thai culture.

The fourth dish to tantalize your taste buds with is a spicy papaya salad, or Som Tang, a Thai delicacy. Although maybe not designed for foreigners – it really is different to anything you’ve tried before – it is a Thai favorite and a must for experiencing Thailand. Fifth there is Moo Sa-Te, pork sticks that are grilled with Turmeric. Again this is different, but provides a wonderful taste that is different to anything else around. For number six and seven we have two variations on chicken soup – Tom Yam Gai and Tom Kha Kai. Although fairly similar in style and name, they both stand alone in their moreishness, making for a great main course or starter.

Green chicken curry comes in at number eight, another fabulous dish that has to be experienced to be believed. Simply take one taste and you will see what we mean, it truly is a wonderful experience. Pad Thai, or fried noodle, is another Thai delicacy, one that dates back hundreds of years, making for a wonderful dish to try when you are out in Thailand. It really is a great experience, and a testament to the overall skill of Thai chefs.
