Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary

Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary

Khlong Saeng (คลองแสง) is a wildlife sanctuary in southern Thailand, located in the west of Surat Thani Province.

It covers an area of 1155 km² of the districts Khiri Rat Nikhom and Ban Ta Khun, located directly north of the Khao Sok national park.

The wildlife sanctuary is named after the river (Khlong) Saeng, a tributary of the Phum Duang River. Most of the lowland areas in the Khlong Saeng valley were flooded with the building of the Chiao Lan reservour. This now flooded area was also the only location within Thailand where Storm's Stork (Ciconia stormi) was confirmed to breed in 1986.
