7 September 2020 – Today we received the devastating news that our beloved friend and field biologist, Arfah Nasution passed away earlier this morning. Although she was only 29 years old, she was a true conservationist who dedicated her life to preserve nature.
26 June 2020 – Last week we started a new Cikananga sustainability project: Help us to kick start it! Our sustainability project will focus on: Food production, land management and water access. These three areas of focus form a multi phase project, involving an on site composting facility, food production, tree nursery – including fruit trees and a well water improvement program. In this last two months we started to improve our on site sustainability project and improve our compost building again! Currently, financial support is essential for us to kick start this sustainability project, especially the food production project, which will provide food for our 500 animals in our care and helps Cikananga to be more independent while minimizing our footprint. This on-site food production has the potential to be both financially and socially benefit for us, as well as the community around us. Check it out here on Gogetfunding for Cikananga Sustainability Project.
Any questions of support are welcome. Please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
29 May 2020 – THANK YOU! We have reached our goal of 2800 Euro on the ‘Help Cikananga in Corona Crisis as new Rescued Animals Arrive’ campaign! Actually we even have collected a bit more, 2855 Euro!

On behalf of the 500 animals at #Cikananga: Many Many Thanks to you all!

30 March 2020 – As a result of the developing Corona crisis we are looking for help through this GoGetFunding campaign. Currently a substantial source of income has quickly reduced to zero as we needed to close Cikananga from visitors such as interns and volunteers. This income has helped Cikananga in the past to pay for the daily animal care such as food and basic medication. In addition we rescued new animals that are in need.
Please let us know if you want to help or follow the link to the GoGetFunding Campaign of Cikananga & Wanicare Foundation .
If there are any questions or ideas to discuss, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
26 March 2020 – As we speak 60 birds are rescued to Cikananga Wildlife Center after confiscation, being a wide selection from the a illegal trader including Cassowaries, different parrots and Cockatoos species and many more. This huge inflow comes during challenging times as Cikananga is also facing substantial impact from the developing Corona crisis. Currently a substantial source of income has quickly reduced to zero as we needed to close Cikananga from visitors such as interns and volunteers.
Any support for Cikananga is welcome so we can help these birds and the many other animals in our care. More updates to follow.

3 March 2020 – Wanicare & Cikananga are celebrating #worldwildlifeday 2020! For the many animals in our care, mostly victims of the ongoing and horrendous wildlife trade we work together with many other organisation around the globe to be part of the he theme of World Wildlife Day 2020, namely “Sustaining all life on earth”.
This encompasses all wild animal and plant species as a component of biodiversity as well as the livelihoods of people, especially those who live closest to the nature. It also underlines the importance of sustainable use of natural resources in support of the achievement of the #UnitedNations Sustainable Development Goals #SDG.
13 February 2020 – A female Javan Langur was rescued to Cikananga after it was found around human settlements approaching people. This individual is skinny and has scars from being on a chain around the waist and therefore we believe she escaped from the previous “owner”. Sadly we observed an extreme response her when our keepers hold a long items such as an broom during cleaning of the enclosures, indicating it has traumatic experiences and quite possibly was mistreated.
27 January 2020 – We want to thank all visitors of the 2020 Wanicare Fundraiser & Year Update. During the festive afternoon Wanicare Founder Willemijn Eggen shared an extensive overview of last year and an update on the ambitions for 2020.
In summary last year was intense with many rescue efforts, some incredible releases, new partnerships and sponsors and some fantastic improvements to the Cikananga Widlife Center as we managed to built new enclosures, improved existing existing housing and again invested in the medical support. For 2020 we work with existing partners and sponsors, as well we are to share we welcome new partner to realize our work. As such we will develop the Hornbill Release Project, our Save the Javan Leopard project, the Raptor Project and intensify the efforts for Gibbons and much, much more. This year we are on a mission to release many animals and we hope to provide proper care and a home to wildlife in need.
Do you also want to help us? Please contact us or donate right away through the donate button. Any help is welcome to help the animals that are victim of the wildlife trade and who are loosing their habitats. If you want to receive the presentation with all updates please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
