Slow Loris Rescue
Exotic Nutrition is currently working with International Animal Rescue/Indonesia providing Gumivore-Fare as a food source for the endangered slow loris that are being rehabilitated at their facilities in Indonesia. Gumivore-Fare is an acacia gum based soft food that helps provide nutrition for slow loris being rehabilitated at their facility in Java.
The slow loris in Indonesia are under serious threat of extinction as a result of habitat loss and the illegal trade for pets and for traditional medicine. The Javan slow loris is included in the category of ‘endangered’ species on the IUCN Red List and named as one of the 25 most endangered primates in the world.
International Animal Rescue has established a facility specialising in the care of slow lorises in Ciapus, West Java. The centre and its rescued lorises feature prominently in the BBC Natural World documentary, Jungle Gremlins of Java (25 January 2012 BBC 2). The centre also featured in the BBC Indian Ocean series with Simon Reeve (3 June 2012 BBC 2). The team is currently caring for nearly 100 slow lorises that have been surrendered by their owners or confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade. Here the animals undergo treatment, rehabilitation and socialisation in preparation for release back into the wild. However, many of the lorises have had their teeth cut out and therefore may no longer be able to fend for themselves. They are working with veterinary dental specialists to determine whether their teeth can be repaired or replaced. A number of slow lorises with their teeth intact have been released into the wild and are being closely monitored using radio collars. Working closely with universities and scientists, research into successful rehabilitation and reintroduction programmes for slow lorises is ongoing at the centre. Their education officer also goes into schools to give talks to local children about the danger that slow lorises could be driven to extinction.
Watch the video below for insight on the situation and we encourage you to contact International animal rescue to help.
