Pongchart Chouehorm, the Director of the Natural and Wildlife Education Centre and his team released 80 monkeys on their new home on Koh Payu.

The monkeys were kept inside big cages for their transport from Phuket to the monkey’s new home on a local fishing boat. The boat departed from Ao Po Pier in Paklok. It took 30 minutes for the journey to Koh Payu. The monkey release was a happy occasion for the monkeys and took about 20 minutes. The monkeys ran into the forest and started to investigate their new home.

There are now 169 monkeys that have been sterilised (122 male and 47 female). Those monkeys have also been returned to Koh Sirey and Soi King Kaew where they have lived for many years and become a mini tourist attraction. Locals have been asked not to feed the monkeys now they’re returned to their old stamping grounds.
