They were both cruelly dumped in the forest, where they had little hope of survival. They might have been ex-pets, or even, possibly used in the brutal coconut harvesting industry.
At the WFFT Wildlife Rescue Centre we have 8 gibbons rehabilitation islands in the large lake in front of the rescue centre. These rehabilitation islands were created to aid with the rehabilitation of the gibbons rescued by WFFT, far from human interference. Their diet is supplemented daily by the WFFT Wildlife Staff who go out to the islands using a small boat. Thus, gibbons live as free as possible in a captive setting. Each week the WFFT Vet Team goes out to check the health of the gibbons . Take a look at the current paired residents.
