The WIN Rescue Center is located in the Subic Bay Forest Zone and provides care and housing for sick, injured, and confiscated wildlife. Many of the animals that come to WIN were rescued from the illegal wildlife pet trade. The long-tailed macaque is frequently captured for this purpose. The mother is killed and the baby is taken to be sold as a pet. Animals, like civets, are hunted for food and the pet trade. They are often seriously injured during capture with cruel snares.
The majority of animals that come to the Rescue Center are successfully rehabilitated and returned to the wild. However, for animals that have lost the ability to live on their own, WIN provides a permanent home for them at the Rescue Center. We socialize them with other individuals, when appropriate, and provide quality food, housing, medical care, and enrichment.
In 2010 we initiated a reintroduction program for the Long-tailed macaques to return these animals to a life in the wild. Read more about this successful ongoing effort in the Projects page.
The needs of the animals are carefully studied and provided at the WIN Rescue Center.
