Artificial Salt Lick
How it would be if our children have to grow up in a world where some animals are extinct left to be realized through the stories and images only?
Artificial salt lick is one of the wildlife habitat improvement activities of WWF-Thailand in Kui Buri National Park collaborated with Wildlife Conservation Network, government agencies, private sectors, and local communities to help create the abundance forest which is considered as
'Home' of Wildlife
Salt lick is an area where the various types of minerals can be found. Those minerals are necessary for the body of wildlife especially wild herbivores such as wild elephants. The herbivores wildlife eat plants which do not contain the important minerals so they have to substitute by eating ground or drinking water from salt licks in order to receive the necessary mineral nutrients.
Artificial salt lick is a manmade by digging the soil into basins and pour sea salt mixture in the excavated area where the rain will dissolve the salt mixture into the soil and become food for wildlife.
