Pedagang Kukang

Seorang pedagang hewan liar jenis kukang (Nycticebus coucang) sedang menunjukan dagangannya. Hewan ini termasuk yang dilindungi oleh pemerintah sejak tahun 1973. Pedagang hewan liar sepertinya kerap kali dijumpai di kawasan Cadas Pangeran pada saat-saat tertentu. Menurut si pedagang, hewan ini ditangkapnya dari Kabupaten Sukabumi. Terlepas dari masalah hukum perdagangan hewan yang dilindungi, kegiatan ini akan terus ada selama ada permintaan.

A vendor selling a slow loris, one of Indonesia's rare and endangered species, shows it for me. I met him on my way back home in Cadas Pangeran. At a certain time, many unlicensed animal traders like him show up along this area.

  1. Who are they selling them to DD, do people try and smuggle them out of the country. What a shame, especially as you say some of them are endangered. I hope you had a good New Year and wish you all the very best for the coming year.

  2. It's sad that people are selling endangered animals like this. Anyway, have a great 2012.

  3. That's a unfortunate issue! I wonder what the police would do?

    Please take a look at my Brazilian friend's new CDP blog:
