Weʼve raised £135 to Help rescue Gibbons from the abusive and illegal tourist trade and return them to the Wild
- Phuket Thailand
- Funded on Tuesday, 13th December 2016
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project was founded in 1992, the same year it became illegal in Thailand to own/hunt/use gibbons (and other wildlife). Unfortunately this has not stopped the trade and every year thousands of tourists pay a small sum to hold and take pictures of these endangered animals. They do not realise or care that for that one photo, 10 to 15 gibbons have been killed.
Because of this, GRPs work never ends. They have been reintroducing rescued gibbons since 2002. From a population of 0 in Phuket, they have managed to return a healthy, breeding population of 27 and counting!
But this hard work needs our help. Completely reliant on donations, the GRP struggles to fund their vital work. This is where we come in.
In December I will be running a 5k colour run. I do not run. I often just die. So this will be a huge challenge for me. But I want to help this project and I think it is beyond worthy of our help.
So please donate. Every little bit will help and will be put to such good use helping to return these amazing gibbons back to their natural home.
