  • What an incredible project. The love and care that volunteers put into the gibbons and their rehabilitation is phenomenal. We were given an overview of the project and introduced to some of the permanent residents. Their stories are heartbreaking but to see the work the project has done to tirelessly rehabilitate these amazing creatures is, on the flipside, absolutely heart warming. The rely solely on donations, contributions and sales from their little kiosk so for anyone deciding if this trip is worth it - it is. Visit, listen, donate and buy a singlet and a few postcards. These amazing creatures need all the support they can get and the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project is doing a wonderful job!
  • It was great here what an amazing project and so good to see the education for local and tourists against using animals in any way. Highly recommend this place. Donation only and are for a good cause
  • This Gibbon Rehabilitation centre is doing wonderful things. They're changing the poor lives of these mistreated gibbons; increasing the wild population of gibbons in Thailand's rainforests and keeping the gibbons that can't be safely let back into the wild looked after. There knowledge of these smalls apes is fantastic and they love to share their knowledge about what they are doing. In Thailand baby gibbons are captured and used for photo opportunities at tourist spots around Thailand. To capture one of these gibbons it requires killing the mother and the rest of the troop. Very very sad. Thank you so much for everything you're doing at gibbon rehab Centre. Please go if you're passing through and spread the word. The reason more isn't being done for the gibbons is because not enough people are making enough noise about this issue. There is also a lovely waterfall 200 metres away too which is great for a dip.
  • This is the best place to report illegal activities that involve gibbons. They obviously care deeply about gibbons. This very important project has been going on for a very, very long time as (unfortunately) the need to protect gibbons is a never-ending issue. Whatever you do, please DO NOT GET YOUR PHOTO TAKEN WITH A GIBBON by a tout! It both illegal and highly unethical. Touts are still out and about... these pics were taken on October 14th, 2019 on Koh Kai.
  • Even though you only see 4 Gibbons, it is still worth while, just for the support they need. Plus gibbons are awesome... The rest are kept away from a lot of human interaction so they can be released into the wild.
