Gibbons — The Forgotten Ape with Thanaphat Payakkaporn Episode 4: Show Notes. With the majority of attention given to chimps, orangutans, and gorillas, it is a mystery why the beautiful and intelligent gibbon is not as well documented and cared for. One of the reasons for this may be the lifestyle and residence of the gibbon, naturally spending most of its life high off the ground, above the canopy of trees. Here to share his thoughts and talk about his work with rescuing and rehabilitating gibbons is Thanaphat Payakkaporn, who is the Secretary-General of the Wild Animal Rescue Foundation of Thailand. Thanaphat also works with The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project, an NPO dedicated to repopulating natural spaces with these wonderful animals. Today, we have an informative and funny conversation about the personalities and habits of gibbons, with our guest sharing his expertise on breeding, feeding, and much more! There is also a darker side to this discussion, with Thanaphat explaining the horrible ways in which gibbons have been treated in order to capture and exploit them for money. Near the end of the episode, Thanaphat gives some details on how you can support his project and lend a hand in this struggle for a healthier situation, and we hope you will consider donating! Listeners can expect to come away with an enhanced perspective on the life of gibbons, their status in Thailand currently, and what needs to be done in order to ensure a better future for them. Key Points From This Episode: Thanaphat’s upbringing and background, and how he got involved in conservation work.
