Lanta Animal Welfare
Lanta Animal Welfare started around 16 years ago by a woman who wanted to help all the stray dogs and cats on Lanta. The main thing they do are neutering and sterilizing the animals so they won’t reproduce, and also help injured dogs and cats. The animals that don’t have a family and have been too long at the shelter so they are used to being feed, they put up for adoption. The founder of LAW also owns time for lime, which helps with a lot of the expenses that LAW has.
The park is named mu ko lanta and is in the south end of Koh Lanta. The national park was established in 1990 as a marine park. Apart from swimming, you can go for a 2 km long hike.
