    Sueb Nakasathien is Thailand's greatest hero for wildlife conservation! His struggle to protect Huai Kha Khaeng and other protected areas against continued destruction was always fraught with extreme difficulties. He unselfishly gave his life for the animals and wild places, and his legacy in Thailand is set forever.

    Seub helped to propose Huai Kha Khaeng as a World Heritage Site, along with Thung Yai Naresuan Wildlife Sanctuary to the west. But he did not live long enough to see the proposal accepted. Together, the two sanctuaries help protect 6,427 square kilometers (2,481 square miles) of pristine wildlife habitat. They make up one of the finest and largest protected areas in Southeast Asia.

    A large bronze statue has been built close to his house at the Huai Kha Khaeng headquarters area in his honor, and is now his spiritual home. Many people flock to this magic place, including myself, to pay homage to him. May his soul rest in peace and his spirit continue to look after the Kingdom's greatest wilderness.

    “I sympathize those who have no chances in the society; they are pressured and taken advantages in every way. Thailand will be much better if those lucky ones would sacrifice some opportunities, so that the unfortunate souls could be saved. I would like to see better society”. Seub Nakhasathien.
