Support the Little Fireface Project by adopting one of our wild lorises or helping with a sick or injured animal that needs care before we can release it back to the wild. Your donations pay for guide salaries, radio collars, emergency cages, medicines for sick and injured animals, transport to bring animals to rescue centres, empowerment education materials and similar costs. This is an excellent way to help with our current projects and you get a single adoption pack in return for your support.
Adoptions last for one year. Your adoption pack will include a certificate, photograph, description of your animal, the latest Little Fireface Project newsletter, and a small slow loris present that varies from pack to pack.
Our adoptees represent our project in various ways. Azka is our resident playboy adult loris, and with every turn he teaches us something new about slow lorises. Our radio tracking team is following him through the fields around Cipaganti village and learning how lorises cope with life in an agroforest. He is also stretching our knowledge about loris social organisation, and due to his feisty nature, we are learning just for what reason lorises have venom! Lucu is our young lady – her name means funny! She was born on the edge of the village around December 2012. Through observing her, we will learn how lorises grow, disperse and develop through watching her adorable antics. Honey the loris almost spent his whole life as a loris pet; due to our massive education efforts in the area, he was brought to us by villagers, and is now released to the wild with a radio collar. Honey represents ‘wildlife trade’. Sometimes we do find sick and injured lorises so adoptions can help with their care. Adoptions also allow us to support our rescue centre partners when they are in dire need. Javan slow lorises are amongst the top 25 most endangered primates on Earth and everyone is special.
