- +

The Royal Forest Department and the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation are expected to merge within a year, after senators on Tuesday passed a motion to support the move. 

Manophat Huamuangkaew, director-general of the Parks Department, said the bill will now be sent back to the House for consideration as the Senate amended some of its details.

If the House agrees to the changes, the bill will be forwarded to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra who will seek royal endorsement.
