Handicapped animals in Dutch care

Wildlife Rescue Center

Sometimes the truth is ugly. Wild animals being kept as a pet or even worse used to entertain tourists. Gladly there are people who are concerned about the welfare of these animals. One of these people is Edwin Wiek, a Dutchman. He founded and runs the Wildlife Rescue Center. The Wild Animal Rescue Center is located behind Kao Look Chang Temple in Petchaburi province, Thailand, approximately 40 Kms from Hua Hin.

You can vist the center and take a look around. We have visited the center once. It is wheelchair accessible. However there are a few obstacles where you might need a little bit of help. It is nice to look and walk around, see the animals and listen to the stories of the volunteers. Keep in mind these animals are a kind of disabled themselves. They didn't learn to take care of themselves. So they need help. So don't forget to make a donation to keep up the good work.
