Between 2010 and 2014 Wildlife 1 Foundation built and operated a wildlife rescue centre in Chiang Dao northern Thailand. During that time the foundation rescued bears, primates, birds and reptiles and assisted in the rescue and confiscation of hundreds of animals from illegal wildlife trade.
These are images of just some of the wildlife we worked with. Every year thousands of wild animals are captured, killed and confiscated in illegal trade, many are abused and exploited for the tourist industry. Many thousands of confiscated animals are also being kept in legal limbo in government holding centres, a result of the booming black market for wildlife in Asia. All images Copyright © Adam Oswell
