Workshop for Spiritual Leaders on Reducing Demand for Wildlife Products Training Report

The workshop was a collaboration between the International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB), USAID Wildlife Asia, WildAid Thailand, the Thai Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP), FHI360 and the Sekhiyadhamma network and Wat Chak Daeng. It was held on October 21, 2020 at Wat Chak Daeng, Samut Prakhan Province, Thailand. This event was the first time that Buddhist spiritual leaders were brought together to learn about how monks and nuns can be key influencers in Thailand’s national effort to end the killing of animals and using wildlife products (skin, teeth, ivory, meat, etc.) in the belief that these products bring good luck and protection.
