On Tuesday, April 20, 2021, the Central Aceh Bksda team and accompanied by ISCP Aceh representatives confiscated a male Sumatran slow loris, from a resident named Mr. Sugianto, 37 years old, who works as a vegetable trader, addressing the village of Blang Jorong, Bandar sub-district. , it's really classic reason which said he got the Sumatran slow loris from a resident who sold it to him, the slow loris has been kept for 3 days, he also admitted that he did not know that this animal was a protected animal, Mr. Sugianto apologized, after being given a strong warning from BKSDA accompanied by the ISCP team that in the future if buying or maintaining slow lorises will be subject to criminal penalties in accordance with Law No. 5 of 1990 concerning Conservation of Living Natural Resources and their Ecosystems.
Due to the fact that the Sumatran slow loris is having a health check where the slow loris is still healthy and still wild, on the same day the Aceh BKSDA team is accompanied by volunteers from ISCP representatives in Aceh releasing the slow loris in a safe conservation forest in Central Aceh,thus our report from the field.
