Project origin

The combined effects of illegal logging, commercial cropping, excessive slash-and-burn practices, and overall land pressure, compounded by mismanagement, are rapidly depleting tropical forests.

Recognizing this urgent issue, the Gibbon Experience was initiated with a mandate to adopt a unique and innovative approach. Since its inception in 1996, we have been committed to ensuring a sustainable future for the Bokeo forest, which became Nam Kan National Park in 2008.

Today, the Gibbon Experience works in partnership with the National Park and provides full-time employment to over 80 people, contributing to both environmental conservation and local economic development.
