Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1990
Fresh Water Fish Conservation Project
This description of Boonsong Panyawuttho's work was prepared when Boonsong Panyawuttho was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1990.
Phra Boonsong, a Buddhist monk and the son of a gardener, is head of the Phranon Wat (temple) in southern central Thailand. He is spearheading a drive to make Thailand's Buddhist institutions environmental leaders in society and also to demonstrate new ways of increasing the fish population in the inland waterways and restoring tree cover chiefly through massive fruit tree planting.
