Building new enclosures for the Cikananga Raptor Program

7 november 2016 – Now that the large rehabilitation cages are fixed from the storm damage and the recovery cages construction is finished another construction project started here in Cikananga. This block is built at the location where we first prepared individuals for the large rehabilitation cages. And this new block includes four similar cages fit for preparing eagles for the large rehab cages.

This design will make sure there is no direct contact between keeper and animal during feeding. And as there are more species of birds that are being rehabilitated at Cikananga two cages for parrot or hornbill species are included in this block.

Another Siamang Rescue: Ruby

28 october 2016 – After a long drive we picked up Siamang Ruby from the marshals of the Forestry department. They confiscated her a day before from an illegal mini-zoo located in a mall. Ruby is a full grown female, she is very tired, stressed and seems overly sad. We will keep you updated. If you would like to adopt Ruby, please let us know: We can use all the help to care for her.

We brought an Ebony Leaf Monkey who was also confiscated directly to Aspinall near Bandung. The other animals (a snake, cockatoo and a peacock) where taken to other places by the Forestry department.
