I don’t think I would have ever thought I would be in Laos, but here I am!
What an incredible country! Beautiful scenery, yummy cafe’s, lovely people – it certainly has it all!
We are situated in Luang Prabang, a small, slow moving tourist town that has a touch of French architecture and a quaint relaxed feel. Here I dream of setting up a wildlife sanctuary, wildlife hospital and education centre, none of which are here at present. I have 6 months to lay the foundations of this project and get things going, or I will have to return home to make some more money before returning.
Laos means ‘the land of a million elephants’, yet sadly there are now less than 800 left in the wild and some other elephants (known as domestic elephants) are still used trekking camps, the logging industry and for tourism. Wildlife is also killed and caught due to the wildlife trade, conflict in rural communities and also as a food source. Tigers now only number approximately 350 in the forests of Cambodia, Laos, Mayanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
Many other species also inhabit Laos’s significant forests, including the Western Black Crested Gibbon, the Eld’s Deer, the Slow Loris, many reptiles, the Siamese Crocodile, and abundant species of birds.
Sadly many people here don’t understand the importance of their natural resources, so we hope to educate, raise tourism, continue vital research, and increase the value of natural areas for the future. Lets hope it all comes together!!!
