Over the last month, our staff and volunteers worked hard on a special project to renovate DoDo’s home.
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.
We want to introduce you to 'Baibua' an infant female Northern pig-tailed macaque who arrived at the WFFT Wildlife Rescue Centre a few days ago.
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.
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.
After spending many years in captivity two Large Bamboo Rat’s (Rhizomys sumatrensis) were handed over to WFFT a few days ago. We have named them Stuart and Little.
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.
This week a family travelled from Bangkok to WFFT with a very young Common Squirrel monkey (Saimiri.) named ‘France’.
Did you know that macaques communicate using complex vocal and gestural signals? They vary among the species.
Early this week we received a call from a family that wanted to find a new home for their pets, two Asian small-clawed otters (Amblonyx cinerea) named Thung Ngern and Thung Thong. Early yesterday morning these lucky otters arrived at their new home.
Every morning and afternoon, it is time for our amazing volunteers to prepare meals for over 600 animals, including 6 species of gibbon, 6 species of macaque, 2 species of bear, numerous wildcat species, civets, crocodiles, birds and more.
Saturday night the WFFT Wildlife Rescue Team headed to downtown Petchaburi to rescue a young male long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) that had been electrocuted and fallen to the ground.
