23 March 2018- This rescued Slow loris arrived in February and he is successfully recovering from a amputation. For obvious reasons we called him Captain Hook, but the important thing is that he is doing really well. Hook was moved from the clinic to an outside enclosure this week where we keep a close eye on him to monitor his climbing skills and overall behaviour.
Javan Slow lorisses (Nycticebus javanicus) are listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN redlist. The trade is still very harsh but we have been able to rescue many of them from the illegal trade.
