    Bears kept as pets, monkeys that used to pick coconuts, and elephants zoos can’t afford to feed: a Thai sanctuary is taking in abandoned animals despite struggling financially after nearly a year of coronavirus restrictions battered the tourism industry.

    “My biggest concern now is that we have 850 animals that need the best care possible,” Edwin Wiek, the gregarious founder of the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT), told VICE World News. “It’s just a matter of when the country opens up. If it takes until June or July it will be a disaster for us and other industries.”
