The Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group requested that
the Minister of Environment and Forestry issues a ban on all cruel animal
attractions in Indonesia. Based on the
monitoring of Scorpion in the Indonesian zoos, the wildlife attractions are
mostly used for the sake of entertainment rather than educational interests,
therefore. The attractions are a form of animal
abuse and exploitation.
In the letter, which was sent by email, Scorpion also attached a video from the latest monitoring result of wildlife attractions in Gembira Loka Zoo, Yogyakarta, on the 29th of January 2017.
The letter also copied to the Director General of Conservation of Natural Resources and Ecosystems, and the Director of Biodiversity Conservation at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry.
