The Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand plans to undertake the biggest tiger rescue in Thailand’s history. Last week, the WFFT received news that the Phuket Zoo would be suddenly closing its doors for good. They asked that the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand rehome eleven tigers and two bears.

The WFFT already takes care of more than 30 other bears. However, they still have room and thus, will not only rescue these animals, but also take care of them.

Edwin Wiek, Founder, and Director of WFFT, said in an email to One Green Planet, “This rescue will be no small feat for WFFT. The financial resources required to rescue and transport 13 large animals from Phuket to WFFT alone will be significant. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have received more calls than ever from entertainment venues that cannot afford to feed their animals anymore. We try to help as many as we can. The fact is, though, that without financial support, we cannot help more. We are urging our friends in Phuket, in Thailand, and around the world to please help with what will be a huge rescue, not only for WFFT but for tigers in Thailand.”

This rehoming will be the biggest tiger rescue in the history of Thailand. Due to Covid, the WFFT needs some financial help to pull it off.
