Phuket Gibbon Rehabilitation Center
The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project was founded in 1992 and works with White-Handed gibbons (Hylobates lar), the most widespread of the four species found in Thailand. Gibbon babies are acquired when their mothers are shot; they are then illegally sold as pets or as tourist attractions.
The Rehabilitation site is in Khao Pra Theaw Non-Hunting Area at the Bang Pae Waterfall, Phuket, Thailand. It is about 9 km. east from the Heroines Monument. You can visit our center and see some of the gibbons from the veining platform. The Center opens daily 9am to 4pm.
