Psychology Club Visits Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand

On Sunday, December 02, Dr. James Close and Dr. Gareth Davey accompanied Webster University Thailand’s (WUT’s) Psychology Club on a field trip to Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT). Founded in 2001, WFFT provides a sanctuary for domesticated / captive wild animals who have typically been rescued from abuse and / or exploitation. To help in its fight against animal cruelty in all its forms, a key goal of WFFT is to educate people about the plight of these animals, and to promote responsible eco-tourism in Thailand and elsewhere.

During their tour of WFFT, members of the Psychology Club were introduced to many of the rescued animals that reside there, and the physical and behavioral problems that they suffer as a result of their previous maltreatment. They were also informed about the rehabilitation process and the rehabilitation efforts that WFFT undertakes.

wildlifeThe field trip offered an eye-opening insight into the suffering endured by many animals in Thailand and around the world, and how natural animal behavior can be disrupted by abuse. The Department of Psychology at WUT would like to thank WFFT for a fantastic experience and the excellent lunch that was provided.
