Mission Statement

1. Develop a method to successfully rehabilitate white-handed gibbons back into their natural habitat: The GRP has been testing methods of reintroduction for the past 22 years. Every reintroduction is a learning opportunity. Reintroductions remain a relatively new division of conservation movement as well as uncharted terrain for research. 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 (National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department) 4. To create awareness of the importance of conservation of the environment

Description

In 1994 the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation of Thailand (WARF) started to support the project, we are now a research division of WARF.
