THE RESCUE CENTER
Cikananga Wildlife Center in Indonesia operates on the front lines of the wildlife crisis, rescuing animals from an abusive multi-billion dollar industry. Victims of animal trade are captured from the wild, often as babies, and are sold as pets, bushmeat, dancing monkeys, or ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine. Animal keeper Ade Solihin, and others working at the Center, care for animals who have narrowly avoided the illegal wildlife trade.
