Eagle Habituation Cage Repairment

The eagle release is our greatest achievement so far. We only use two from four cages as habituation because the other two cages cannot be used due to broken cages and holes everywhere. In order to make it reusable, SunBear Outreach is helping us to make the plan comes true. Eagle cage repairment could start as soon as possible.

In the process this repairment did not take too long. This was done by our animal keeper and assisted by Tojeiro, so it was finished in about two weeks. As soon as the repair is complete, four eagles have been moved to the habituation cage. The eagles are being monitored until they are ready to be released.

The project doesn’t stop there. There are still a few more cages that need to be repair. After the eagle habituation cage has been repaired, coninued with repair the peacock cage. Until today, the progress have been carried out gradually. This cage it is a fairly large cage in the shape of a semicircle with a height of approximately 6 meters. Usually used by peacocks before they are released into their habitat. After two peacocks were released last June and the cage was empty, we repair the cage before reuse it due to the conditions were quite apprehensive.

It was a quite old cage (more than 15 years) and had a lot of holes and rusty everywhere. The tree inside the cage that got bigger, pushed the cage and bent the iron then made a big mess. We strive to keep the trees growing and can be used as natural footholds for the animals that we care for. But part of the trunk was cut, and the main tree remained grow in its place.

Three additional small cages were made to accommodate even more animals. Makes it easy for animal keepers to feed and clean the cage. Later, after the cage ready, we plan to move our three binturongs from living in a small old cage to this new big enclosure. So they can be ready to return to live in the wild.

This cage repairment requires a lot of money, approximately around 40 to 70 million rupiah because it need the best quality wire and iron besides risky workers. With all kind hearted, Sunbear Outreach being our sponsor for this cage repairment.

During a pandemic period, eventhough it’s quite difficult for us to earn income from the volunteer programme, at least we still have hopes of giving the best to the animals that are cared for, here at the centre.

Keep donate to support us to take care of the animals so that they can have a better life.
