WFFT Highlights - October 2019
A few days ago a family brought juvenile long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) named “Jaiboon” to WFFT so we could help with her rehabilitation.
Tuesday night, the WFFT Wildlife Rescue Team received a call. A baby long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) was hit by a car with serious injuries.
This week the WFFT Rescue Centre welcomed three new residents. An infant Asian Palm Civet and two Asian Small-clawed Otters.
Did you know that sun bears have a nickname? Because of their love for honey, they are also called "honey bears".
Over the last month, our staff and volunteers worked hard on a special project to renovate DoDo’s home.
We are getting closer to our target! WFFT would like to say huge thank you to everyone who has helped us raise $6581 for the new animal habitat urgent fundraising, but we still have a long way to go.
We received a phone call on Saturday the 5th of October from a village chief about 70kms away from our wildlife rescue centre, calling in a rescue case of a pangolin that was weak, lethargic and covered in ants.
WFFT Highlights - September 2019
Did you know gibbons are mostly monogamous? They often pair for life only finding a new partner if one off them passes away.
This year we have seen very little rain in this part of Thailand resulting in our water reservoirs being unusually low and almost empty. In a few weeks, as the water runs dry, we will have to remove gibbons from their island homes out on the big lake at the WFFT Wildlife Rescue Centre.
Unlike most other wild cats, the fishing cat lives primarily along rivers and in mangrove forests. Their main prey is fish. They have webbed feet, this helps them swim and stops them from sinking when walking on mud.
Did you know that the WFFT Wildlife Hospital treats over 1000 animals every year? Many of these animals are rehabilitated and released back to the wild.
This week we received a phone call from a concerned local who found an infant Long-tailed Macaque who had been hit by a care and knocked unconscious.
What if I told you there is an animal on the earth that smells like hot buttered popcorn would you believe me? Yes, you did not read it wrong.
This project will be focused on giving refuge to cat species not found in Thailand and tigers from circuses in Europe, in collaboration with Stichting Leeuw in The Netherlands.
