Support the youth and people in one of the poorest areas in Thailand

For sustainability and protection of the species, we want to acquire  more forest land on which the wild emerald beetle can be harvested after  its natural demise.

 Acquired by Pramort and Panee, these rural areas give the village  youth a perspective so that they do not have to migrate south to the big  cities, where they have to fight with dubious jobs for a future.
Through the acquisition and protection of the land, a  sustainable supply of the population is given and foreign major  investors are stopped in their often haphazard construction rage.
The properties to be acquired are currently in public  ownership and can be purchased by the government at a fair price with an  anti-expropriation guarantee.
We need about 450 000 THB (about 12500 €) to acquire an area of ​​about 6 acres of natural forest.

Through private donations we were able to realize half of the investment costs.
The plots are in close proximity to the village of Khok Phu   in the Pramort and Panee with their village community working on the  traditional and above all upcycled artisan production of jewelry.  Khok  Phu is located near to sakon narkhon in Isan area in the north east of  Thailand. It is located near to laos and it is one of the poorest areas  in the country. 

Jewels made from nature instead of profit-oriented environmental destruction and exploitation of our planet.

In the following, we would like to give you a brief insight into the work

The siamese emerald beetle lives about 23 months as a larva in the undergrowth and under the earth before he pupils and dies after the reproduction.

This is a natural process and is not influenced by people.

After harvesting the collected species, they are used by the population as a protein supplier and serve as food.

Traditionally jewelery or works of art are traditionally made from the remaining parts.

All species processed by 18Wings are not covered by the CITES Agreement and are therefore not protected or threatened with extinction.

On the contrary, 18Wings products are gained after the natural death of the species.
