WFFT Animal Rescue Sanctuary
Wildlife Friends of Thailand is a non-government owned Wildlife Rescue Centre and Elephant Refuge situated in Thayang, Petchaburi just 30 minutes away from the Resort. It gives visitors a chance to learn about the rescued creatures living at the centre, see hundreds of animals and get up close and personal to elephants in a way which is cruelty-free and does not exploit them.
The centre offers half day and full day experiences where the money generated is invested back in to developing the centre further with the help of additional funding and resources. It aims to educate those that visit about the elephants provides an individual story about each animal, how it came to be there and when / stroke if can be re-released.
