Put the Safari park on your list of things to do and a place to visit in Thailand even if you don't have the time to volunteer there. Knowing I was going to be in Thailand for 5 weeks in March I looked into volunteer work and fortunately came across the web site for the volunteer programme at the safari park in Bo Phioi. What an amazing experience that was! The welfare of the animals is uppermost, as in some cases they have been rescued from stupid humans who think it's ok to OWN a wild animal. The volunteer co-ordinators along with volunteers have been working extremely hard for the past 18 months both physically and mentally to make a success of the rescue retreat and change the face of animals in captivity. During the 2 weeks I was there, headway was made into clearing an abondoned butterfly garden to make way for a haven for teenage leopards and a lot of thought constantly goes into enrichment for the animals. Tom and Lucy (2 volunteers) spent a few days putting together a day in the life of a volunteer video which can be viewed on the safari park website.
Joe the owners son is a delight and eager to do anything within his power to improve the animals welfare and surroundings.
Put a day out to the safari park on your list of things to do whilst in Thailand or even sign up for the volunteer programme. More people need to know about the good work being done there. Enjoy
