The first issue of the Thai version of Wetland Wonders has been produced by Wetlands International-Thailand Programme in collaboration with Office of Environmental Policy and Planning, Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment. Ground was broken in 1996 when Hong Kong Bank, the New Straits Times and Wetlands International joined hands to produce "Wetland Wonders" (now Save the Wetlands), a series of monthly 4-page newspaper supplements to the News Straits Times, Malaysia’s largest English-language newspaper. Wetland Wonders featured educational articles aimed at raising public awareness of the importance and value of wetlands. The project has clearly been successfully in helping to raise this awareness among the general public in Malaysia. Now "Wetland Wonders" will be produced in Thai for 12 monthly issues from August 2002-July 2003 featuring informative articles on the values and functions of wetlands. The project is financially supported by PTT Plc, a Thai National Petroleum Company.
