Captured in Sibolangit forest one month ago, a slow loris was kept by villager in Derek village, Sibolangit, North Sumatra. A team from Indonesian Species Conservation Programme (ISCP) and Scorpion Foundation carried out an outreach activity in Derek village explaining villagers that keeping protected species was illegal. For anyone who capture, keep or trade protected animal can get a sentence of up to 5 years in prison with a fine of IDR100,000,000 (US$7,000).
This slow loris has been prevented from illegal trade.
