After success in rescuing and rehabilitating pangolins, Thai was then responsible for all activities related to the captive management of carnivores and pangolins as the captive manager at CPCP. Thai has carried out many research projects both in captivity and in the wild, resulting in him co-authoring many published papers in international scientific journals.

He was chosen as one of 40 wildlife heroes in the Wildlife Heroes book, published in the United States in 2012 and in 2016 he was awarded the prestigious Future for Nature Award.

He is also Captive Ecology Vice-Chair of the IUCN SSC Pangolin Specialist Group. Thai’s success has stemmed from his devotion to threatened species backed by solid scientific research.
