Thai national parks locations for Jurassic World 4

Thai national parks locations for Jurassic World 4

The National Parks, Wildlife, and Plant Conservation Department is expected to take a few days to review a request from the production team of “Jurassic World 4,” the latest film in the Jurassic Park franchise, to use three national parks as filming locations.

The department’s director-general, Atthaphon Charoenchansa, announced today that the Hollywood production has already submitted a detailed plan for the use of the locations between June 17 and 28. The proposed locations include Kradan Island and Morakot Cave in Hat Chao Mai National Park in Trang province, Huai To Waterfall in Khao Phanom Benja National Park in Krabi, and Tapu, Nakha, and Song Phi Nong islands in Phang-nga Bay National Park in Phang-nga province. Drones will also be utilized during the filming, he added.

Atthaphon explained that, according to regulations governing commercial use of national parks, the department charges the production team 3,500 baht per day, with a surety of 2 million baht, for the 12-day use of the locations. An appendix to the contract details the compensation to be paid for any damage to the environment, plants, or wildlife during the filming period, if any.

He emphasized that he has communicated the department’s concerns about potential environmental impacts to the production team, urging them to ensure that filming activities are environmentally friendly. This includes using equipment that minimally affects the environment.

Atthaphon stressed the importance of strict regulations to prevent a repeat of the environmental damage caused during the filming of “The Beach” in Maya Bay, Krabi, in 2000. That production felled trees and bulldozed Maya Beach to create a new setting for filming, resulting in extensive damage to the environment and the bay’s ecological system.
