Critically endangered Javan Slowlorrises rescue

17 May 2017 – Slowlorris poaching is everywhere, even very close to Cikananga. Last week we took in a male that was brought to us by a caring friend of a staff member. At arrival his legs seemed paralysed and one was broken. After removing a bullet the animal did not recover from the paralysis. Also a X-ray revealed many broken bones. Sadly we could not help this animal in any way and we had to put him down to stop his suffering.

Please know that Slowlorrises are impossible to keep as pets, that poaching simply murders many of them in the process and by now Javan Slowlorrises are critically endangered and vanishing from the wild.
