Eagle Translocation to Halimun Salak National Park

Time flies so fast in February. We still had to carry out several activities during the pandemic, even though we had to tighten expenses and cut some employee salaries due to a lack of funds. Open donation and fundraising programs have really helped us through all these difficulties. In one month, approximately 100 million rupiahs are collected to meet operational needs. We are also offering animal adoption programs. Thankful, we got a lot of adopters. In January, there were 9 adopters, and there were an increase to 18 animal adopters in February.

On February 6, 2021, we translocated 6 eagles (5 Changeable-hawk eagles and 1 crested serpent eagle) to the Eagle Sanctuary in West Java. We hope that all the eagles are possible to be released at the Halimun Salak National Park, also in West Java. This activity was assisted by the BKSDA (Natural Resources Conservation Center) and COP (Center of Orangutan Protection).

In addition, repairs to the peacock cage, which were delayed several months ago, can be resumed. Finally, we have a new dome, which is intended for two hornbills. Soon, they plan to be released back into their habitat in East Java.

Fruit donations from CSR Superindo and COP are still ongoing. A large number of internship students help with all of our activities here, which really eases the burden on us and the animal keepers in particular. Our veterinarians and interns carry out blood tests for crocodiles, turtles, and eagles. Medical check-ups of small primates, from macaques to gibbons, were also carried out. We had medical checkups for two orangutans, Ucokwati and Mungil, almost at the same time. A hand from Gembiraloka Zoo vets and COP vets makes our orangutan screening run smoothly.

Ucokwati and Mungil are in the preparation stage to be translocated to the COP site in Kalimantan, where they will study at jungle schools. After graduating from jungle school, they will return to their habitat very soon.

The world conditions still make it impossible for us to reopen the volunteer program for foreigners. There are still restrictions on tourist visits to reduce the rate of COVID-19 cases. So we had to figure out how to keep the center running because we couldn’t keep depending on donations.

Apart from translocating the two Orangutans, we will undertake several release plans, such as those for long-tailed monkeys, in the near future. Hopefully there are no obstacles and the animals can return to the wild freely soon.

Tojeiro volunteered at WRC in 2018 and instantly fell in love. He decided to leave his job in the Netherlands to work alongside our keepers, managing projects and making sure all the animals get the best care possible. During the relocation period, Tojeiro studied animal health management to increase his capacity in the field of animal welfare.
