By rudianto sembiring | project leader
ISCP friends and all good #GlobalGiving donors, we inform you of the results of the ISCP Rescue & Release meta data for slow lorises and other wildlife from 2016 to October 2021, which lorises and other wildlife were confiscated by the Natural Resources Conservation Center together with YPKSI /ISCP. and also cooperate with other local NGOs on the trade in wildlife and slow lorises that are kept as pets. Hopefully by sharing this information,we could work even harder in saving slow lorises and other wildlife in Sumatra in particular and in Indonesia in general.
This is one of our plans in the future to move to a new location by renting new land or if funds allow from the help of friends ISCP will buy land with a good location for a slow loris & other wildlife rehabilitation center where the current location is only 1 hectare accompanied by with an extreme location with a slope of almost 60-70 degrees which is very risky for high natural disaster disturbances.
We really hope that all of our friends can continue to set aside a little fortune to continue to donate so that the goal of building a slow loris and other wildlife rehabilitation center in a new location can be achieved soon...Amen
Finally, we thank you very much for your support and donations, without your support in our work to save slow lorises and other wildlife, we or ISCP would be nothing.

Fighting forgetfulness is a form of struggle to simply remind that our struggle, we and all of our friends supporters or donors, is to save slow lorises and other wildlife in this world.
14 years ago, all species of slow lorises were included in Appendix I of the Washington Convention on Endangered Species (CITES). Where the results of the decision, stated that the commercial trade in slow lorises caught in the wild has been banned since September 13, 2007.
Since 2015, we, the Indonesian Species Conservation Program (ISCP) have started it today as an opportunity to continue working with local wildlife authorities, in this case the BKSDA or government stageholder,others local NGOs and international partners to draw attention to the ongoing threat to slow lorises. Because despite the ban on commercial trade, slow lorises are still one of the most frequently smuggled and illegally traded animal species in Southeast Asia as well as in Indonesia. Hunting in nature and trade are the biggest threats to these primates. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Endangered Species now lists all slow lorises as “Vuknarable” (VU), as “endangered” (EN) or “critically endangered” (CR).
We said thank you very much to everyone who campaigns for the slow loris and its protection and primate research! This includes all donors who have taken part in our fundraising at this GlobalGiving platform.
