Since 2012, Love Wildlife Foundation has collaborated with the DNP to help confiscated lorises, whose situation has only gone worse over years. So far, around 90 lorises (from 14 in 2012) are confiscated at the Water Bird Breeding and Conservation Center in Bang Phra, Chonburi due to illegal possession as pets or photo props.
