To assist the Lao government in combatting the illegal wildlife trade. We rescue, rehabilitate and release as much wildlife as possible, as well as being involved in worldwide conservation projects. We will continue to provide education to the people of Laos to encourage them to want to conserve their natural biodiversity.
The original project here was established as a rescue centre and an animal welfare project at the Lao Zoo in 2015. Due to the success, interest and need for this project, the LCTW was born as a registered non-profit foundation in Laos in 2018. We now strive forward and have become the only Laos registered foundation for not only wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release, but now also conservation and education.
We work with the Lao authorities and individuals who need our help, to rescue, rehabilitate and release as much wildlife as possible, most coming from the illegal wildlife trade. Those that are sadly unsuited for release will be cared for in our Wildlife Sanctuary with a combination of a high standard of animal welfare, the best formulated diets in South-east Asia and access to full time veterinary care from our on site Vet team. Also integrated into our Wildlife Sanctuary are residents of the Lao Zoo which we have been working with since 2015 to increase the animal welfare standards and provide 24/7 medical care.
We have many volunteer programmes that assist us in our important conservation work such as our Husbandry and Enrichment Programme, Vet and Vet Nurse Programme, and Animal-based Studies Programme. Come get your hands dirty with us!
