Your gift will be chosen from the range available on our Etsy shop.
This year’s adoptees are:
One Eye: followed since 2012, One Eye helps us to know how adult slow lorises adapt to life in a forest converted by humans to agriculture. This information is vital for long-term habitat protection and reforestation. Supporting her also helps our important reforestation and tree nursery programmes, and education with local adults.
Flower: Flower, or Bunga in Bahasa Indonesian, is the son of our famous loris Speedy, or Tereh. Following him helps us to understand how baby lorises grow up,; understanding how babies leave home will help to inform reintroduction programmes. Supporting him also helps in our local conservation education programmes with children.
Lia: Lia shows the example of how our education and outreach has swept over the area where we work. Rescued from illegal trade, Lia was brought for rehabilitation at our partner rescue centre before going home to the wild. Supporting her also helps in our important illegal wildlife trade work.
