Rainy morning monkeys

A few days ago after it rained through the night and into the early morning. Unlike other mornings, I did not have a horde of monkeys awaiting my arrival.

Instead, they were all sitting in the trees in small groups, dozing their late morning away. Like many people, the monkeys also do not like to be out in the rain. So instead, they went to the trees to escape the rain and avoid touching the soggy ground.

At about 10:30 a.m. the monkeys quickly forgot about how much they hate the wet ground when somebody dropped off some bananas.

Morning's like these remind me of how similar primates and people are. We have similar hands, hang out with friends, stay inside during the rain, and are motivated by food!

Support the project

The PMP is a completely non-profit organization and therefore relies only on private funds to achieve its goals. If you want to be part of the adventure and help us achieve our ultimate mission, a harmonious life between the monkeys and the inhabitants of Phana, you can volunteer or come and visit Phana and contribute to the project with your accommodation fees. 

Or you can donate small amounts or buy the books of one of the original founders of the PMP, Lawrence Whiting whose knowledge and experience in Thailand inspired him to write several books on Isan and Buddhism. 
Know that all the profit and donations will be used for the sole purpose of improving the daily life of the monkeys by buying them their favorite food and paying the local staff who clean and manage the rubbish in the forest of Don Chao Poo.
