- Program Description:
Our Thai Wildlife Rehabilitation and Care Project is based in a large animal sanctuary in central Thailand. Located on temple grounds and adjoining native forest, the sanctuary operates a rescue and rehabilitation program for animals that have been neglected or mistreated. While the sanctuary aims to return rescued animals to the wild, many animals cannot be released due to ongoing health or survival issues. These animals are provided with a permanent home at the sanctuary.
With over 400 animals in care including birds, gibbon, macaque monkeys, leopard cats and civets, volunteers are kept busy preparing food and feeding, cleaning enclosures and providing enrichment games and activities.
The sanctuary strives to provide living conditions that are as natural as possible for animals in permanent care and therefore this project has a strict no-handling policy.
- Setting Description:
- The project is located in central Thailand, near the Tha Yang district in the Phetchaburi province. Phetchaburi is home to Kaeng Krachan National Park: 3000 km² of protected rainforest and the largest National Park in Thailand. The Park is famous for its diverse flora and fauna and spectacular morning mists.
- From $465 USD.
