Children and Nature.....Kaeng Krachan in Switzerland

Our two children Lukas, aged 6, and Jonas, aged 3, are always delighted to come along with us. Lukas has already been here six times! As a family we go to the beach together, explore the many nearby caves, visit the Wats (temples), shop at a local market or take a trip to the previously mentioned Kaeng Krachan National Park, which is famous for its wild elephants. Since 2009 Zürich Zoo has been supporting the National Park and its pachyderms with its foundation. Through this partnership the stunning new Kaeng Krachan elephant enclosureopened two years ago at the zoo.Through our work here we are also interested in making a contribution to the upkeep of this unique nature reserve and its wildlife.

Realisation

There are many people involved in the Chang Mountains Bungalow project: myself, Walter Jerger, from Switzerland (trained chef and house-husband) and my wife of 10 years, Pikul Jerger-Kiriya (traditional Thai masseuse), who was born and grew up in north-east Thailand. Also taking part in the project are our siblings, Peter Sellner (planning and design), along with family members in Germany, England, Thailand and Switzerland.

Kaeng Krachang in der Schweiz

Der Zoo Zürich unterstützt den Nationalpark und seine Dickhäuter seit 2009 mit einer Stiftung. Vor ca. 2 Jahren wurde im Zoo Zürich die imposante Kaeng Krachan Elefantenanlage ( 11’000 Quadratmeter! ) neu eröffnet. Es ist eines unserer Ziele mit der Arbeit im Resort einen Beitrag zum Erhalt dieser einmaligen Tiere und des Natur-Resevats zu leisten. Hinter dem Projekt Phu Chang Bungalows stehen Pikul Jerger-Kiriya, ausgebildet zur traditionellen Thaimasseurin, geboren und aufgewachsen im Nordosten Thailands und Walter Jerger (Hausmann, Konditor, handwerklich begabt) und seit 10 Jahren verheiratet

Walter Jerger ist in einem Garni Hotel mit Restaurant, Bäckerei, Konditorei in Bad Ragaz aufgewachsen, wo er auch mitgearbeitet hat bis er auf Reisen ging. Heute arbeitet Pikul Jerger erfolgreich als Thaimasseurin in ihrer eigenen Praxis in Bad Ragaz und Walter betreut die beiden gemeinsamen Söhne. Die junge Familie wird unterstützt durch die Geschwister und Verwandten in der Schweiz und in Thailand, durch ihren Planer und Freund Peter Sellner, durch ihre Verwandtschaft in Deutschland, England, Schottland und vielleicht in Kürze auch durch dich und deinen Beitrag an dieses ökologisch basierte und am sanften Tourismus orientierte Projekt. Ganz herzlichen Dank für dein Interesse!
