The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project (GRP) in Phuket was started in 1992. It aims to

  1. Develop a method to successfully rehabilitate white-handed gibbons back into their natural habitat
  2. End the demand for the illegal use of gibbons as tourists attractions and as pets
  3. To repopulate the last remaining rainforest in Phuket-Khao Pra Theaw Non-Hunting Area (National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department)
  4. Create awareness of the importance of conservation of the environment.
  5. Provide the opportunity for volunteers to study the white-handed gibbon.
The project is open to the public, with gibbon enclosures in which the gibbons are kept before being moved to more open enclosures away from the public. Displays give information about the running of the project. Gibbons may be adopted and sponsored. The Gibbon Rehabililtation Project relies heavily upon volunteers for support. Anyone wishing to volunteer at the GRP should contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
