The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project (GRP) is a research division of The Wild Animal Rescue Foundation of Thailand. Khun Noppadol Preuksawan, the chief of the Royal Forestry Department in Phuket together with the Asian Wildlife Fund and support from WARF, established it in 1992. Terrance Dillon Morin was also a driving force. In 1994 GRP became a research division of WARF. The project's goal is to save gibbons and their rainforest habitat through rehabilitation and education
By means of our education programme we aim to reduce poaching and deforestation both gaining support for our project and assisting the conservation movement in Thailand. The GRP is an effective resource for teaching the local community and foreign tourists. It attracts international students and volunteers who wish to study gibbons. Gibbon conservation is not a problem unique to Thailand. What we learn here will be passed on to other projects with similar aims.
