Ticket to Freedom – Returning Gibbons home
One of the less pleasant aspects of the tourist industry worldwide is the exploitation of wild animals.
On the face of it, posing with a cute baby animal for that memorable holiday photo seems harmless enough until you start to question how that animal came to be there sharing the same space and time as you in a totally alien environment, being made to behave in a totally unnatural way, often by the use of drugs, or physical abuse.
And what happens afterwards, when they are too big to be cute, or too unruly to be controlled any longer? What then?
Most people turn their back on these uncomfortable questions, but thankfully some do not, and a dedicated example of that is the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation Thailand’s (WARF) Gibbon Rehabilitation Project - GRP (http://www.gibbonproject.org/). Hailed as the most successful Gibbon Rehabilitation project in the world, GRP have dedicated the last twenty years – yes twenty years to rehabilitating abused Gibbons to the point where they can be released back into the wild in a sustainable way.
Whether on land or at sea, wildlife forms a vital component of the planet's eco-system. Volunteer work abroad with animals offers the opportunity to participate in the struggle to conserve, rescue, and research all of Earth's creatures. Volunteer Abroad With Animals Now!
