Primates rescue: slow loris, macaques and gibbons in Thailand
Several species of primates common to Thailand such as gibbons, macaques and loris find a sanctuary in our centre. Occasionally also other non-primate species may find shelter here. We aim for the rehabilitation and long-term care of these animals, many of which have suffered from abuse. The animals identified as suitable for release are put trough a long rehabilitation program. But many animals do not meet the criteria for rehabilitation and are sadly unsuitable for release. These animals will have to remain at the sanctuary for the remainder of their lives. We also operate an education program to educate the community on wildlife and habitat conservation. Through education we aim to reduce poaching and deforestation, as well as gain support for our project and for the conservation movement in Thailand.
