The cabinet meeting on Tuesday approved a proposal to nominate Kaeng Krachan Forest Complex for listing as a World Heritage Site, deputy government spokesman Chalitrat Chantarubeksa said. 

The approval was based on the fact the Kaeng Krachan forest is a centre of biodiversity and is home to more than 720 indigenous animal species, Mr Chalitrat said.

Kaeng Krachan is also a major habitat of several endangered species, including a fresh water crocodile found only in this forest complex area, he added.
