Anna Nekaris was chatting to Sian Williams and Bill Turnbull on BBC Breakfast this morning about her love of the slow loris and what it is about this little nocturnal primate that keeps her returning to the jungles of Indonesia.
Remember to tune in to BBC2 Natural World tonight at 8pm for the exciting premier of the ‘Jungle Gremlins of Java’
TWO THOUGHTS ON “BBC BREAKFAST”

An excellent documentary, highlighting many issues still to be resolved. Congratulations on an extremely informative programme and well presented. To all of those who watched the you tube film on these endangered species, put your energy into actually doing some good to help endangered species instead of wasting your time watching sad people film these animals for laughs. To the people who were filming this creature for you tube for your own smug benefit, shame on you.

An excellent documentary which conveyed well the plight of the slow lorises who are not “teddy bears” but real living creatures who feel pain when their front teeth are torn out and when they are separated from their family or kept in cages in hot dry conditions. We should all try and support initiatives which Dr Nekaris is spearheading and promote admiring these creatures in their natural habitat. It may well be that those who took the U-tube film did not mean any harm but the reality is that that film is a real threat to these animals. These animals are no more meant to be pets! Massive congratulations to Dr Anna and her team.
