Sadly, news reached The Flying Scouts that Jan, a female gibbon previously released in Ban Jam Pee, had been attacked by a rival gibbon family, and after falling out of a tree, sustained additional serious injuries from marauding wild dogs.
The Flying Scouts were called in to airlift Jan from Chiang Mai to Phuket to minimise her distress travelling in a confined cage for such a long distance of over 1,200Km
The flight was conducted successfully during November 2023.
Jan is now safely residing at GRP, where a plan is being put together to pair her with another male gibbon, and attempt to release her once again in the wild as the first amputee gibbon ever to be released.
The Flying Scouts are standing by to airlift her back to freedom one day hopefully in the not too distant future.
