The Wildlife Conservation Bureau will on Wednesday release 50 animals of four species from a wildlife breeding station into Mae Wong National Park in Nakhon Sawan.



The bureau said on its Facebook page (facebook.com/DNP.Wildlife/) that the “Songsat Kheunwana Peuapasomboon” project (Returning wildlife to the fertile forest) will see 30 brow-antlered deer (Eld’s deer), 10 slow lorises, three white-handed gibbons and seven small-clawed otters released.

It said an artificial salt lick would be set up in the park the same day for the deer and other animals to use.
