Water tanks are now being installed on Monkey Islands and a further 38 long-tailed macaques have been captured in Rassada for sterilisation in the ongoing transfer of the animals from Phuket to uninhabited outlying islands.

The monkeys were caught at Soi Tha Chin in Rassada on Friday.

Water tanks were also installed on Koh Tanan in Paklok last week.

Pongchart Chouehorm, director of the Natural and Wildlife Education Centre at Khao Phra Thaew Non-Hunting Area in Thalang, and his team installed the water tanks on Koh Tanan in preparation for the monkeys that will be moved there.

“These monkeys will be taken to an area we’ve set aside for sterilisation at the Bang Pae Waterfall in Paklok. Next, cages will be placed at Koh Sirey to go through the same process with those monkeys,” Pongchart said.

Last week, water tanks were also installed on Koh Payu to provide the monkeys with a reliable supply of water.
