Challenge

There are currently no wildlife treatment and holding facilities except for Orangutan in Northern Sumatra. There are many reports of human/animal conflict and without resources to house and treat these animals, the community is then more likely to support killing and poaching. Enforcement of Indonesian Law to prevent illegal trading in wildlife at a village level and successfully rescuing injured animals very difficult without facilities for trapped, injured or confiscated wildlife.

Solution

If ethical humane treatment and holding facilities are available for wildlife it will be possible to start enforcement of Indonesian Law regarding trading in endangered wildlife. It will provide lifesaving treatment to endemic rainforest species and hopefully reduce wildlife trafficking in the surrounding area. It will increase opportunities to support educational programs to promote environmental benefits from rainforest conservation and consider ethical wildlife conservation.

Long-Term Impact

Decrease the risk of losing more endemic Indonesian Wildlife. Contribute towards the survival of wild Sumatran Tiger and Sumatran Orangutan Highlight the status of other wildlife species in Batang Gadis national Park and Batang Toru Forest ecosystem. Emphasize the need for conservation corridors between fragmented rainforest habitat in Northern Sumatra, and to Western Sumatra Development of long term animal management plans where Human/Wildlife conflict is occurring.
