🌟Introducing our New Thailand Country Director: Khwankhao “Kimmim” Sinhaseni! We are thrilled to welcome Kimmim to the Bring the Elephant Home family as our new Thailand Country Director. Kimmim, whose name means “black” in Northern Thai, is in the final stages of her PhD at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia. Her research focuses on the value of ecosystem services in tropical fruit production, emphasizing wildlife conservation and habitat restoration.

With a rich background in conservation, Kimmim has dedicated three years as the Executive Director of the Bird Conservation Society of Thailand. She has led numerous projects to protect migratory birds and threatened species like the spoonbill sandpiper and spotted greenshank while also promoting public awareness. Before this, she worked as an education officer and researcher at the Forest Restoration Research Unit at Chiang Mai University.

During her PhD journey, Kimmim contributed to Griffith International as a mentor for international students and served as a Brisbane International Ambassador in 2016, promoting student life in Brisbane. Her passion for teaching and education programs is evident through her role as a sessional lecturer, where she educates Thai and international students on wildlife conservation and political ecology.
