Project Summary

Protective Wing

Bird sanctuary

Around 10,000 birds are smuggled through Thailand each year to be sold on the world’s growing black market. Police confiscate illegally-traded birds as evidence, but most birds die because they cannot be properly cared for.

These endangered birds now have a new shelter. At a hotel adjacent to a natural paradise, a reserve serves both birds and people alike including a bird clinic, a library, an auditorium, and more, in a site that simulates the natural habitat.
