Posted on 10:49 November 14th, 2019

 

Scorpion Foundation and the Gunung Leuser National Park Authority (GLNP)-Blangpidie Office,  carried out an outreach activity in the villages of Alue Badeuk and Alue Silaseh, Jeumpa subdistrict in Aceh Barat Daya (Abdya), Aceh province. During the visit to the villages, the joint team met local community to raise their awareness of the protection of wildlife in their villages.

 

Human conflicts frequently happen in the surrounding area of these two villages where people use snars to capture large mammals. The illegal hunters often said, they wanted to capture wild boars which are protected, however, they also snared illegally some protected animals such as deers and sun bears.

 

On 16th of June 2019, two sun bears were snared in these vilages, but it was soon known by GLNP staff from Blangpidie branch office. The GLNP staff together with the Wildlife Authority (BKSDA) in Aceh rescued the animals and brought them to Banda Aceh to care for injury at the legs of the sun bears.

 

During the visit to the two villages in October end, the team also monitored illegal ownership of protected wildlife.
