Rescue to Cikananga

On the 5th of April, this macaque was rescued by the Cikananga team after it had escaped from captivity and was causing conflicts in a village. Residents had captured him and luckily handed him over to BKSDA Region I Bogor. He now is in safe hands with us in Cikananga. This is another example why wildlife should NOT be kept as pets; it is not only detrimental to the animals themselves but also dangerous for the humans around them and the environment. We hope there will be a brighter future for Mauro when he can be sent back home to Sulawesi, where he belongs.
