The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project (GRP)
To Visit GRP :
Just to first remind everyone that we are not a Zoo. We are much more than a zoo. We rescue, rehabilitate and release gibbons back to the forest. However, we only allow visitors to witness some of gibbons that cannot be released. The major reason is we want to limit human contact with them. It is a good place to take your kids to learn about environmental and wildlife.
The Rehabilitation Site and Center for Conservation Education and Fundraising are both located in Khao Pra Theaw Non-Hunting Area at the Bang Pae Waterfall, Phuket, Thailand. This is about 9 km. east from the Heroines Monument. You can visit our center and see some of the gibbons from the viewing platform.
The Center opens DAILY from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. except Saturdays when we are open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We do not charge an entrance fee, however, you will have to pay an entrance fee to the National Park Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department. Once inside the park, parking is provided and you can walk from here to our center.
