Lopburi Zoo is a small zoo in the town by the same name. It is possibly funded by the government, and, as such, the cages are less than adequate. Originally, there were reports of five tigers living here with a family of dogs as their companions. However, by our visit, this turned out to be long past and there were now only two tigers kept in two separate cages.

What we are doing to help
At this time we are raising awareness for the situation of the captive tigers in Thailand through education of the public and through a number of different petitions.
