Nareutus Charoensetsilp, owner of the Chiang Mai Zoo Aquarium, where there is South East Asia’s longest aquarium tunnel, has come out to announce to the media that his team and he had held a special ceremony earlier this year at the ganesha shrine, Arcade Bus Station, asking to survive the crisis.

With 40,000 fish and other sea creatures facing death and another 100 staff facing unemployment, he pulled no stops on the ceremony, evening hiring a dance troupe.

Following the ceremony, he said, suddenly the Zoological Park Thailand announced on 30th July, that they will cover all costs, from electricity to wages, fish food to all upkeep which allowed Nareutus to even pay back all of his debt he had accumulated over the past ten years, amounting to 400 million baht.

He told the media that he believed this to be a true miracle and that it was the dancing troupe, the special desserts, and the many lottery tickets from surrounding vendors on that day.
