A Slow Loris Prevented from Illegal Trade (October 27, 2017)
Posted on 13:59 October 28th, 2017

 

Captured in Sibolangit forest one month ago, a slow loris was kept by villager in Derek village, Sibolangit, North Sumatra. A team from Indonesian Species Conservation Programme (ISCP) and Scorpion Foundation carried out an outreach activity in Derek village explaining villagers that keeping protected species was illegal. For anyone who capture, keep or trade protected animal can get a sentence of up to 5 years in prison with a fine of IDR100,000,000 (US$7,000).

 Following the outreach activity, a villager told the team that he had a slow loris and wanted to hand it over to the Wildlife Authority (BBKSDA) in North Sumatra. Handover to the BBKSDA was carried out on Friday afternoon (27th October, 2017) and the animal is now placed in the ISCP facility in Sibolangit for health care to make sure this animal is healthy when it is released back in the wild.
