Uploaded on Sep 7, 2011

This documentary was produced by College of Idaho students who spent four weeks in northern Thailand during the summer of 2011. The students researched the effects of the country's rapidly expanding tangerine industry, including how tangerine production and Thai-China trade benefits and harms local communities economically, socially and environmentally. Led by C of I professor Rob Dayley, the C of I group interviewed local farmers, public officials and community leaders—including a Buddhist abbot famous for ceremonially ordaining old-growth teak trees as monks to ward off tangerine developers who encroach on forest land. The students also document the transformation of Thailand's northern border area from a dangerous zone where opium traffickers and warlords held much power to an agricultural hotspot for tropical fruit production and global trade.
