In 2023, Roi Et Rajabhat University carried out the second phase of the project to develop a biodiversity and local knowledge learning resource. They surveyed the accumulated carbon content in the Kog Toong Pa and the areas surrounding the university. Additionally, they initiated the first phase of the project to establish a database of plant diversity within the university. This project has been ongoing since 2022.

The survey revealed the presence of 76 species of plant, belonging to 60 genera and 38 families within the surveyed area. The accumulated carbon content was calculated to be 70.37 tons per hectare. This transformation has turned Roi Et Rajabhat University into a place of relaxation and tranquility, providing knowledge about the biodiversity of plants. It also serves as a site for preserving local plant genetics. This initiative raises awareness among youth and the public about the sustainable conservation and utilization of natural resources and terrestrial ecosystems.
