more on Ko Phi Phi island treatment wetland

another good picture from the Butterfly treatment wetland system build in Ko Phi Phi island by Hans Brix. As you can see it is really green, it is really smart, it is really good for this beautiful place!
See this past post for more details about this plant:

yes, last week I have had the same notice by a friend that visiting the site. I have also know that may be the original designer will start the operation to improve the sistem. I hope will do that! Thanks for your updating message.
