Gibbon Rehabilitation

Both The Rehabilitation Site and The Center for Conservation Education and Fund–Raising are located in Khao Pra Theaw Non–Hunting Area at the Bang Pae Waterfall, which is approximately 9 kilometres east from the Heroines Monument. You are welcome to visit the centre and see some of the gibbons from the viewing platform. It is also possible to adopt a gibbon, and for more information on this please ask at the Centre.

2. End the demand for the illegal use of gibbons as tourists attractions and as pets.
3. To repopulate the last remaining rainforest in Phuket–Khao Pra Theaw Non–Hunting Area.
4. To create awareness of the importance of conservation of the environment.
5. Provide the opportunity for volunteers to study the white–handed gibbon.
