So, uhmm where are the Gibbons?
That's our questions too. Deforestation, over-hunting and overuse of land in many parts of Thailand have all contributed to a a general decline in health of the forest ecosystems, including primate populations. While our canopy tour takes place in a beautiful, pristine old-growth rainforest where the plant ecology is primarily intact, some areas near our site have suffered from decades of overuse. A truly healthy ecosystem that can support a wide range of plants and animals needs a very large area for animal populations to stabilize. From the inception of Flight of the Gibbon, it was our goal to minimize the impact of bringing tourist to this amazing place and restore the surrounding areas to once again be a stable, healthy, functioning ecosystem.
