Thailand: National Parks to Get Closed Every Year for Nature's "Rehabilitation"

Thailand has planned to close its National Parks for 2-4 months every year "so that nature can rehabilitate itself". Apparently, the decision came after seeing the recovery of natural habitats during the pandemic-induced lockdown. It will allow beaches to recover from the damage of mass tourism, said Environment Minister. With over 100 national parks, tourism contributes to 1/5th to the Thailand GDP. This, reportedly, took a hit during the pandemic.
