                South of Thailand connect to Andaman and South China seas which are enriched by marine animals (Whales, Dolphins, Fishes, Crabs) and plants. This natural environment benefits the economics and development of Thailand. However, the increased pollution from waste, oil and heavy metal can cause the imbalance of the marine economy and reduce the number of endangered animal and food animals.

                The MRRC is located at Nakhon Si Thammarat province, southern Thailand near the Gulf of Thailand where there are lots of marine animals important for economics and conservation.

                From the local research and data, we found the contamination of toxin, and waste in the Gulf of Thailand. The dead and stranded animals are increased each year, this may be highly related to water pollution caused by humans.  When injured animals are found, the treatment and care need to be done instantly to save their life.  For dead sea animals, forensic investigation needs to be done quickly to identify the  cause of death.

                Therefore, the establishment of MRRC will benefit research, education, and service.
