After seven years in illegal captivity, a Siamang gibbon was rescued in Deli Serdang, Sumatra (March 16, 2018)
Posted on 23:14 March 19th, 2018


Seven years ago, a Siamang gibbon was captured in Batang Toru Forest complex, which is also the habitat of Tapanuli orangutans. Since then, this Siamang gibbon, which was named Mala, was kept illegally in Rantau Prapat for 6 years. One year ago the owner in Rantau Prapat was unable to continue feeding this animal. So, he gave it to his friend Muhammad Yani. Scorpion investigator found Mala one week ago and reported it to the Wildlife Authority (BBKSDA) in North Sumatra.

On Friday, 16th of March 2018, BBKSDA and Scorpion rescued Mala from the illegal owner and brought her to Bodhi Cita rescue centre in Barumun, Sumatra for medical checkup and training so that she can survive when she is returned back in the wild.
