Dr Ian Dacre is just back at the WSPA Bangkok office, after having helped with the animal relief work he is overseeing in Thailand. In this video interview we conducted via Skype, Ian tells us what the situation there has been like.
In this second video, Ian describes the sights he has seen during his work, including some of the ingenious ways in which the Thai people are protecting their animals.
WSPA is distributing large consignments of pet food to help sustain thousands of animals over the next several weeks. Much of the hard work – which our team is doing along with volunteers – involves re-bagging tonnes of this food into manageable quantities, redistributing it in lots of varying sizes and then transporting it to through mud, floods and traffic jams, to the end recipients.
Over the next few days the WSPA team and the volunteers who are helping us, will continue the arduous process of feed distribution. It isn’t always pleasant work, but at the end of the day, everyone feels good knowing how their work is helping defenceless animals survive in these trying times.
