MATADOR PROUDLY PUBLISHED an eye-opening article by Turner Barr on his experiences volunteering at Tiger Temple, and it has since helped raise awareness for what goes on at this popular attraction in Thailand. We are happy to learn that forest authorities and policemen in the Kanchanaburi province have raided Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, sending over 35 exotic birds to a nearby wildlife rehabilitation facilty, and are looking in to the safety and well being of over 100 tigers on the property. Hopefully this is one step closer to getting these endangered animals the care they deserve, and educating travelers on the benefits of responsible tourism .
