7 January 2022 – On the 29th and 30th of December last year the team of International Animal Rescue Bogor came to Cikananga with their portable x-ray machine. And in two days we were able to do Xrays on 20 animals in our center. It allows us to finally diagnose underlying suspected diseases and monitor long-term health issues. Many thanks to the amazing help of the International Animal Rescue team!

24 October 2021 – Today organizations around the world raise awareness for these fascinating apes.
We share with you the amazing news that earlier this month we were able to finish specialized facilities for gibbons at Cikananga with the help of ARCUS This to improve their condition and behavior which will significantly improve their chances for successful rehabilitation and preparation for release. Gibbon confiscations are sadly common, but sadly gibbons are released at a slower rate on most islands in Indonesia due to the long process to prepare them for the wild. Cikananga’s primate facilities were previously not appropriate to rewild or start the rehabilitation process for release.
