Our StoryIn  2007, a  group  of  friends  were  enjoying  one  of  their  frequent rainforest walks in the mountains surrounding Chiang Mai when they came across a pair of Gibbons lockedin a cage near a roadside. They had  been  abandoned  to  die  a  horrible  death  from  starvation  and dehydration.  Shocked  and  outraged, the  nature  lovers immediately rescued this rare, endangered species, slowly nursing the pair back to health while they came up with a plan to create positive ecological change in our world....Flight  of  the Gibbon  was born  and  is  now  the  leading  global  eco-adventure  tour  operator  with  their  phenomenal  rainforest  zip-lines that  are  the  longest,  highest  and  fastest  in  the  world.  Now  the number one tourist attraction in Thailand, Flight of the Gibbon invests 10% of their profits in primate re-habilitation, re-forestation projects and ecological education programs.And  what  about  the  abandoned  Gibbons?  After  their  rescue,  Tong Lorde (Golden Straw) and Tong Dee (Good Gold) were rehabilitated at a site that resembled their natural habitat. Having spent all of their lives  in  a  cage,  they  neededto  be  taught  how  to  look  after themselves in the wild. Now they live alongside the zip-lines of Flight of the Gibbon with their baby sons,born free in the wild, where you can hear their calls, experience their natural environment and maybe even catch a glimpse of them swinging through the rainforest, just like you will with Flight of the Gibbon.As  our  rescued  Gibbon  family  grows,  so  too  does  Flight  of  the Gibbon.
