Wildlife Friends Foundation of Thailand

After a whirlwind week at WFFT it is incredible to see happy, healthy wildlife in great facilities. Since the floods of Oct 2010 the repairs and improvements made are a testament to the work of Edwin, Tommy, Laurene, Lucy and the staff and volunteers at the Centre.

Sadly the wildlife population grows with the team flat out with rescues all over Thailand. They even have a "list" for pending rescues that cannot be actioned without funds; bears, gibbons, elephants...the list goes on.

We lost Joan the elephant after only a few days of "freedom" from the god awful elephant camps still operating and flourishing as tourists STILL spend their holidays riding elephants, patting tigers and having their photos taken with helpless primates. Joan loved her days of freedom, forging herself on bananas and other yummy treats she was never given in her 60 years at the camp...60 years eating pineapple tops (no pineapple, just the green tops)...can you imagine???

O2E supports and congratulates WFFT on the work they do.
