Thus, we are very pleased to be part of this project that recognizes the need to protect endangered species, especially Slow Loris. This support aims to improve the lives of Slow Loris in captivity, protecting them from becoming victims of illegal trade & poaching. Bangkok Airways contributed 60 air tickets on three of our exotic routes which were Samui, Sukhothai and Trat to raise fund on www.socialgiver.com.”
