A group of Adventist youth recently volunteered at a famous zoo in Thailand to raise awareness for last month’s World Environment Day. The Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo—also known as Korat Zoo—is an approximately 200-acre establishment in Korat, Thailand, and one of the most visited tourist destinations in the country. Managing and maintaining this facility demands careful planning and a large workforce.

The youth group consisted of Adventist young professionals studying and working in Thailand, who called themselves #CareTeamKorat. It is a multicultural group, with members hailing from different countries around the world. It is also the only organized Adventist youth group in the province of Nakhon Ratchasima.

The group pooled their funds and raised money to organize activities to benefit others. For the 2017 Global Youth Day on March 18, they organized a community day. They gave away grocery items and health books, organized a feeding program for children, taught English, and conducted free blood pressure checks for the elderly. After a full day of service, massive rain flooded the area forcing the group to navigate through waist-deep waters on their way home.
