The North Sumatra KSDA Center (BBKSDA) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry carried out the release of 18 protected animals in the Natural Tourism Park (TWA) of Danau Sicike cike, Dairi Regency, on Thursday, October 15,2020.
The animal consists of 2 Greater green leafbirds (Chloropsis sonnerati), 1 Blue-winged leafbird (Chloropsis cochinchinensis), 2 Sumatran treepie (Dendrocitta occipitalis), 4 Fire-tufted barbet (Psilopogon pyrolophus), 1 Crested goshawk (Accipiter trivirgatus), 1 Leopard cat (Felis bengalensis) and 6 slow lorises (Nycticebus coucang).
Head of the North Sumatra KSDA Center, Mrs Hotmauli Sianturi, said that the determination of the Lake Sicike cike forest area to be the release location was based on the consideration of the suitability of the habitat location and the availability of animal feed.
"Besides, the condition of this area is also safe and protected from various human activities," she added.
The release of 18 wild animals is protected by law thanks to good cooperation with the partner institution YKPSI-ISCP (Indonesian Species Conservation Foundation) under the leadership of Rudianto Sembiring, who has been actively assisting the North Sumatra KSDA Center in rehabilitation and release activities, especially for slow lorises. The six released slow lorises were the result of the handover of the community to the North Sumatra KSDA Center through the YPKSI-ISCP Org after previously being treated at the YPSI Socialization Cage at the Rumah Pilpil village ,sub district Sibolangit.
Whereas for the Greater green leafbird , Blue-winged leafbird Sumatran treepie ,Fire-tufted barbet are translocated animals from the East Java KSDA Center which were previously treated and rehabilitated at PPS Sibolangit since September 16, 2020. And Crested goshawk and Leopard cat species is the handover of the community to the North Sumatra KSDA Center.
These released animals have previously gone through the process of health checks and adaptations at the Sibolangit Animal Rescue Center (PPS) by the Medical Team. Miss Zakia Sheila Faradillah, S.KH, one of the medical teams participating in the release said that all animals are in good health and physically fit for release.
let's help us continue donate to our fundraiser so that the plan "DEVELOPING NEW KUKANG SUMATRA REHABILITATION CENTER AND OTHER WILDLIFE ANIMALS"
Dear all donors and Supporters,
The hunting and trade of slow lorises as pets are rampant in the Sumatran slow loris. Based on the case of wildlife smuggling, including one of the Sumatran slow lorises, the latest update from TRAFFIC in 2020 from the Japanese customs authority shows that slow loris seizures are the highest :https://www.traffic.org/site/assets/files/12923/crossing_the_red_line_en-forweb.pdf.
Although many law enforcement efforts have been implemented, the smuggling of the Sumatran slow loris and others wildlife continues to this day. This can be seen from the ISCP report for January - September 2020 that there have been 21 individuals saved with the wildlife authorities of the North Sumatra and Aceh and also many reports of other Ngo's such as IAR (International Animal Rescue), the Little Fireface Project.,EPRC, Plumploris and other wildlife's Ngo agencies both from within the country and abroad.
And for that, we are the ISCP with Plumploris.eV Germany, who have broadcast live via Facebook live since september 2018 to invite all friends of wildlife observers from within the country and abroad to declare "Slow Loris International Day" on September 13 every year https://web.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=331652244247301&ref=watch_permalink, which we choose This date is inspired by the film series "Friday the 13th": https: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday_the_13th_ (1980_film). In general, this film series tells about the mystical and ghostly world where in ancient times and until now they still believe in the supernatural world and especially in the local community until now they still use slow loris body mediators, both skulls and sloth body materials after being hunted and killed to be used as a means of mediating the unseen world.
For this reason, we expect the support of the community observing wild animals or both from government institutions and also from domestic and foreign wildlife observers to declare "Slow Loris International Day" every September 13 every year.
And in the near closer day before September 13, we will post a poster design for the world slow loris day campaign.
Notes: In this report we will atach 2 logo campaign and we woul like some of you recomend polling before september 13th meanwhile at september 12nd 00.00 Am which one will use the logo campaign for Slow Loris International Dat by send us email at : email@example.com
As from our Ngo we prefer logo campaign No 1 and feel free from all of you send the polling chosen and send to our email
Thank you and Warm regards
Dear all donors and Good people,
The current condition of the ISCP Sumatran slow loris rehabilitation center is still inadequate and in an area of land that is sloping with a slope of almost 65 degrees and makes ISCP want a new place or suitable land for the development of the Sumatran slow loris rehabilitation center and other wildlife as well as an awareness education center for the community. Regarding the protected Sumatran slow loris and in it there will be land that is used as a "SLOW LORIS GARDEN" or in Indonesian we call it: "KUKANG GARDEN" with permaculture systems and it functions as a place for the availability of food for slow lorises which are rehabilitated before being released into the wild. This is because considering the availability of foodstuffs for the Sumatran slow loris is an inseparable need in the development of the Sumatra slow loris education and rehabilitation center.
Moreover, from year to year, the rescue of Sumatran slow lorises carried out by ISCP in the Sumatra Island region, especially in the provinces of North Sumatra and Aceh, continues to increase and many of them are in poor health when they are found, for example experiencing malnutrition, eye pain / blindness. the result of being penetrated by the wind gun by animal hunters, damaged teeth, the loss of the wild nature of the Sumatran slow loris and so on.
So that ISCP hopes that in the future, the construction of a rehabilitation center in the new land can be centralized and integrated with various complete and adequate facilities as well as a place of education (education), a place for information related to biological aspects and nutritional needs of these animals and also as evaluation materials. as well as future program planning in order to increase efforts in saving wildlife in Indonesia such as the Sumatran slow loris, particularly in the provinces of North Sumatra and Aceh.
Of course, in carrying out this program, ISCP has experienced problems in financing the purchase of new land and other facilities in it, in building the New Sumatran Loris Rehabilitation Center. For that we invite you as our #FriendsOfIscp and #GoodDonors besides helping donations, you can also take part in saving slow lorises. Sumatra and other wildlife by disseminating this fundraising link through your social media. Invite the people closest to you to be part of the rescue of the slow loris and other wildlife indirectly with us.
North Sumatra BKSDA, accompanied by ISCP & HOCRU OIC tim rescued 3 individual slow lorises and 1 black eagle (Ictinaetus malayensis) !!
Wednesday (July 29, 2020), the North Sumatra Province Natural Resources Conservation Center (BBKSDA of North Sumatra), accompanied by the collaboration of the ISCP & the Human - Orangutan Conflict Rescue Unit (HOCRU) unit of Orangutan Information Center (OIC) confiscated and rescued 3 (three) Sumatran slow lorises and 1 black eagle kept by the community at a tourist site in Sei Bingei District, Langkat Regency.
Rescue of animals is done through a persuasive approach to one of the people who maintain protected animals in a tourist attraction in the area.
We were very sad, yet again, slow lorises became pets and were piloted by tourists who came to the place.
In fact the wildlife are very difficult to make as a pet.
Because it is so often wrong in doing treatment that can cause illness that results in the death of the animal.
From the rescue and after being identified by sex, of the 3 slow lorises we saved, 2 were among the females and 1 male.
The condition is,two individual of slow lorises looks thin and must be treated / rehabilitated before it is released into nature later.
Let's continue help us to save the slow loris and another wildlife from extinction due to habitat destruction, hunting and trade for maintenance.
