Thai symbols in botanical garden

BAGUIO CITY- As a manifestation of friendship, Thailand donates a concrete adult and two baby elephants to Baguio, to be installed at the Botanical garden, with expected inauguration on December 5 this year.

Symbolizing manual labor, royal iconography for centuries and as official national animal of Thailand for many centuries, the elephants shall be molded and installed at the Botanical garden with a Thai landscaping concept through three craftsmen from Thailand.

The inclusion of the concrete elephants near the old bear cage shall be reminiscent of the times when the botanical garden was still the Baguio City Zoological and Botanical garden, it was known.

The Thai elephant artists work for four months with manpower, storage and materials support and security from the City Environment and Parks Management Office (CEPMO), as the inauguration is timed for the birthday celebration of the King of Thailand.

In an administrative order, Mayor Mauricio Domogan designates CEPMO Parks Officer Jones Gas-ib to assist in the construction and installation of the iconic figures. Gas-ib prepares a coordinated action plan integrating the city's commitment and support to the project, ensures that basic construction materials are complete and secured, and submit progress reports.

The project was confirmed through a meeting between and among the Thailand Consul in the Philippines; Sangguniang Panlungsod chair on Tourism, Special Events, Parks and Playground committee Elmer Daturin and representatives from the City Mayor's Office, CEPMO, and City Administrator's Office, last July 5. – juliegfianza
