– To assess and build the regional monitoring system for the animal regional system, in 2003 the consultants of the Center for International Bird Conservation (Birdlife) have conducted studies to investigate the system in some interesting areas of Khe Bong, Khe Bu.
– In 2004 Scientific Department and international cooperation have made the research program include: investigating primate program; survey distribution program, ecological characteristics, the ability to regenerate and test the ability of generation a number of conifers in Pu Mat National Park.
