The Gibbon Rehabilitation Project (GPS: 8.04194, 98.39382) is a wildlife centre located close to Bangpae Waterfall. It was founded in 1992 by three men, Noppadol Preuksawan, the then chief of the Royal Forest Department in Phuket, Thavrn Sri-Oon, Bang Pae Sub-Station chief, and American zoologist Terrance Dillon Morin.

Here, you may make a donation to be benefit of the gibbons, or purchase items at the souvenir stall. There are signboards telling visitors about the gibbons. The centre has a mission to educate visitors and generate awareness so that people will reject the idea of keeping gibbons as pets. It has intends to repopulate the wildlife reserve with gibbons.

Visitors are not allowed to approach too close to the cages where the gibbons are kept. This is to reduce direct human contact with the gibbons, so that they can eventually be reintroduced to the wild.
