Bang Pra Non-hunting Area, in Chonburi province, consists of a semi-natural lake surrounded by a bank of semi-natural woodland with some areas of exposed grasses and Typha beds. The reservoir is one used to hold water for irrigation and drinking and as a fishery rather than for hydro-electric purposes, meaning that the water is shallow and can support birdlife. Local people are permitted to fish, gather plants and graze cattle but hunting birds and mammals is forbidden. The water levels fluctuate through the year here with the level kept high after the rainy season into the early dry season so that there is sufficient water for irrigation of surrounding farmland and nearby cities; into the months of March-June the water levels drop, exposing a larger area of grassland habitat.
