INDONESIA BECOMES BETTER

Suddenly orangutans at the Surabaya Zoo became a trending topic in Instagram. A video about the alleged beating of orangutans by the zoo keeper spread widely, comments from Instagram users also varied. Almost all condemned the beating incident.

Animal / Orangutan beaten? This attention is an extraordinary thing. “Indonesia is getting better. We care more about the violence that happens around us. Not only to fellow humans. But the closest human relatives that have 97% of the same DNA. “, Said Daniek Hendarto, action manager of the Center for Orangutan Protection in response to the viral video.

The Surabaya Zoo in its clarification video stated that it was not true. Both orangutans are in good condition. “If this is the case, a physical examination or post mortem is needed. This is to prove the presence or absence of violence to the orangutans. “, Explained Flora Felisitas, veterinarian Center for Orangutan Protection. “We are ready to help if the government need it.”, she added.

INDONESIA MENJADI LEBIH BAIK

Tiba-tiba saja instagram menjadi ramai dengan topik orangutan di Kebun Binatang Surabaya. Video tentang dugaan pemukulan orangutan oleh pawangnya tersebar dengan luas, komentar dari pengguna instagram pun beragam. Hampir semuanya mengutuk kejadian pemukulan tersebut.

Satwa/Orangutan dipukul? Perhatian ini menjadi hal yang luar biasa. “Indonesia menjadi lebih baik. Kita semakin peduli dengan kekerasan yang terjadi di sekeliling kita. Tidak hanya pada sesama manusia. Tapi kerabat terdekat manusia yang memiliki DNA 97% sama.”, ujar Daniek Hendarto, manajer aksi Centre for Orangutan Protection menanggapi viralnya video tersebut.

Kebun Binatang Surabaya dalam video klarifikasi nya menyatakan bahwa itu tidak benar. Kedua orangutan dalam kondisi baik-baik saja. “Jika memang demikian, pemeriksaan fisik atau visum pada orangutan tersebut sangat dibutuhkan. Ini untuk membuktikan ada atau tidaknya tindak kekerasan pada individu orangutan tersebut.”, jelas drh. Flora Felisitas, dokter hewan Centre for Orangutan Protection. “Kami siap membantu jika pemerintah membutuhkan.”, tambahnya lagi. 

Terimakasih para pengguna media sosial, kepedulian kita menjadikan Indonesia lebih baik! Terimakasih Orangufriends… ayo terus kampanyekan #OrangutanBukanMainan bahwa Orangutan di lembaga konservasi ex-situ harus terus diperhatikan kesejahteraannya dengan memperhatikan 5 Kebebasan Kesejahteraan Satwa.

VIOLENCE TOWARDS ORANGUTAN: AUDIT SURABAYA ZOO!

Allegations of violence towards orangutans that occurred at the Surabaya Zoo were devastating for days. Orangutans which are primates with 97% DNA similarity to humans are treated very cruelly.

Orangutans are very intelligent and sensitive animals. Orangutans can choose which ones are good and which are bad for themselves, in terms of food, trees to make nests even determine their roaming area. What happened behind the beating? What causes orangutan keepers to use rough methods to make orangutans follow their orders? 

If we look at the history of zoos in Indonesia, this is not the first time and not only for orangutans. Besides doing violence to animals, zoos in Indonesia do not care about the welfare of the animals either. There are so many cases of very dirty animal cages with very miserable animal conditions.

For the Surabaya Zoo, we cannot forget that this zoo has a bad history of animal care. Some cases have occurred in this zoo, from a giraffe that died with 20 kg of plastic in its body to an African lion that found dead in hanging position. The video on alleged orangutan abuse a few days ago made it clear that the zoo was slow to make improvements.

“COP urged the government to conduct an audit and assistance to the zoo which has become the icon of Surabaya. The addition of CCTVs at all zoo location is important so that unusual incidents can be cross checked again. (EBO)

KEKERASAN PADA ORANGUTAN: AUDIT KBS!

Dugaan penganiayaan berupa pemukulan terhadap orangutan yang terjadi di Kebun Binatang Surabaya sangat menyayat hari. Bagaimana tidak, orangutan yang merupakan primata dengan kesamaan DNA 97% dengan manusia diperlakukan sangat kejam. 

Orangutan merupakan satwa yang sangat pandai dan juga perasa. Orangutan bisa memilih mana yang baik dan mana yang buruk untuk dirinya, dari segi makanan, pohon untuk membuat sarang bahkan menentukan area jelajahnya. Apa yang terjadi dibalik pemukulan tersebut? Apa yang menyebabkan pawang orangutan menggunakan cara kasar untuk membuat orangutan mengikuti perintahnya?

Jika kita melihat riwayat Kebun Binatang di Indonesia, kejadian seperti ini bukan yang pertama kali dan juga bukan hanya pada orangutan. Selain dilakukannya kekerasan pada satwa, kebun binatang di Indonesia juga tidak memperdulikan kesejahteraan satwa itu sendiri. Banyak sekali ditemukan kasus kandang satwa yang sangat kotor dengan kondisi satwa yang sangat kurus. 

Untuk Kebun Binatang Surabaya, kita tidak bisa melupakan bahwa kebun binatang ini mempunyai riwayat buruk terhadap perawatan satwa. Beberapa kasus tidak wajar pernah terjadi di Kebun Binatang ini, dari jerapah yang mati dengan 20 kg plastik di dalam tubuhnya sampai dengan singa afrika yang mati dengan posisi tergantung. Beredarnya video dugaan penganiayaan orangutan beberapa hari yang lalu memperjelas bahwa KBS lambat melakukan perbaikan. 

“COP mendesak pemerintah untuk melakukan audit serta pendampingan terhadap kebun binatang yang menjadi ikon kota Surabaya ini. Penambahan CCTV di setiap lokasi kebun binatang agar seluruh kejadian yang tidak lazim bisa di cross check kembali.”, ujar Reza Kurniawan, ahli primata COP. (REZ)

COP CONDEMNS THE VIOLENCE AGAINST ORANGUTANS AT THE SURABAYA ZOO (KBS)

Jakarta – The spread of a video of alleged orangutan abuse at the Surabaya Zoo (KBS) has raised concerns. In the video it appears that orangutans have experienced acts of violence allegedly by animal keepers.

“We deeply regret the occurrence of alleged orangutan violence inside the enclosure. Orangutans should get good care, protection and treatment, this in fact at the Surabaya Zoo they get acts of violence.”, Hery Susanto, manager of Anti Wildlife Crime of the Center for Orangutan Protection. 

Zoos should play a role as the last sanctuary against animals outside their habitat through the role of conservation, education, research and recreation. But with this incident you have to think again when visiting the zoo. The role that this zoo should have played has been questioned when this violence took place at the Surabaya Zoo.

“Allegations of violence against these orangutans must be a serious concern for the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) to carry out detailed investigations regarding this case of violence.”, Hery Susanto, Manager of the Anti Wildlife Crime of COP.

In several media publications, the management confirmed that the orangutans were beaten with hoses due to fighting between orangutans when they were about to enter the cage. The parties concerned can also investigate the cage management pattern and the safety standard for these animals and animal keepers, and why this violence occurred.

“We will wait for the steps from KLHK regarding this case, hopefully there will be decisive action regarding cases of violence that occur in orangutans on KBS. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry as the owner of full authority for animal conservation institutions in Indonesia can conduct a cage management and maintenance audit to ensure that violence against orangutans is resolved is not just news.”, Hery Susanto, COP.

COP MENGUTUK DUGAAN KEKERASAN ORANGUTAN DI KEBUN BINATANG SURABAYA (KBS)Jakarta – Tersebarnya video dugaan penganiayaan orangutan di Kebun Binatang Surabaya (KBS) menimbulkan keprihatinan tersendiri. Dalam video nampak orangutan mengalami tindak kekerasan oleh yang diduga oknum perawat satwa. 

“Kami sangat menyesalkan kejadian dugaan kekerasan orangutan yang ada di dalam kandang tersebut. Seharusnya orangutan mendapatkan perawatan, perlindungan dan perlakuan yang baik, ini malah di Kebun Binatang Surabaya mendapat tindakan kekerasan.”, Hery Susanto, manajer Anti Kejahatan Satwa Centre for Orangutan Protection.

Kebun Binatang seharusnya menjalankan peran sebagai benteng pertahanan terakhir terhadap satwa di luar habitatnya melalui peran konservasi, pendidikan, riset dan penelitian serta rekreasi. Namun dengan adanya kejadian ini harus berpikir ulang ketika mengunjungi kebun binatang. Peran yang seharusnya dilakukan kebun binatang ini menjadi dipertanyakan kembali ketika kekerasan ini terjadi di Kebun Binatang Surabaya.

“Dugaan kekerasan pada orangutan ini wajib menjadi perhatian serius bagi Kementrian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan (KLHK) untuk melakukan penelusuran yang mendetil terkait kasus kekerasan ini.”, Hery Susanto, Manajer Anti Kejahatan Satwa COP.

Dalam beberapa publikasi media, pihak manajemen membenarkan jika orangutan dipukuli dengan selang akibat perkelahian sesama orangutan ketika akan masuk kandang tidur. Hal ini juga bisa menjadi penelusuran pihak terkait terhadap pola manajemen kandang dan pola standar keamanan bagi perawat satwa dan satwa tersebut, kenapa kekerasan orangutan ini terjadi.

“Kita akan menunggu langkah dari KLHK terkait kasus ini, semoga ada tindakan tegas terkait kasus kekerasan yang terjadi pada orangutan di KBS. KLHK selaku pemilik otoritas penuh terhadap lembaga konservasi satwa di Indonesia bisa melakukan audit manajemen kandang dan perawatan guna memastikan kekerasan terhadap orangutan mendapat tindakan tegas bukan sekedar berita lalu saja.”, Hery Susanto, Manajer Kejahatan Satwa COP.

SCHOOL VISIT AT BINUS SERPONG

Tuesday, May 7 2019 COP had the opportunity to conduct a school visit program at the Binus Serpong school. The event was rescheduled to the next day because of the holiday fasting. The mini library hall was almost fully filled when the COP team arrived. They were teenagers from 11th grade who seemed eager to listen to information about orangutans. 

The one and half hour session ran smoothly with presentation and fruitful discussion. There are many questions from students, especially what they can do. They are interested in the adoption concept which allows them to be directly involved in saving orangutans. As a follow up to the session, the students created campaign posters to save orangutan.

After the session ended, Tristan and Gideon, representatives from the Student Council came to the COP team to elaborate ideas. Currently they are organizing a fundraising activity called HOPE, where they put empty bottles at various points in the school to be filled with donations. They have chosen 4 potential recipients of donations where the plan is one of them is COP. We also talk in more detail about what students can do to help. The discourse to conduct a field visit to Borneo COP also surfaced. “The live-in program in the Dayak village and the visit of the COP rehabilitation center is very possible, but we need to finalize the concept so as not to disturb the rehabilitation program itself, also other preparations should be done. At present the most immediate benefit is the adoption and donation program. There are orangutans like Owi, Happi and Popi who are in our adoption lists.”, Ebo, Education Specialist from COP, explained. “Owi, there is HOPE from Binus Serpong!” (EBO)

 

KUNJUNGAN KE SEKOLAH BINUS SERPONG 

Selasa, 7 Mei 2019 COP berkesempatan melakukan program school visit di sekolah Binus Serpong. Jadwal acara sendiri diundur sehari karena liburan awal puasa. Aula mini perpustakaan sudah hampir terisi penuh saat tim COP datang. Mereka adalah 200an remaja-remaja dari kelas 11 yang tampak semangat untuk mendengarkan informasi terkait orangutan.

Presentasi sendiri berlangsung sangat cair, tidak terasa satu setengah jam berlalu dengan presentasi dan tanya jawab. Ada banyak pertanyaan dari siswa terutama apa yang bisa mereka lakukan. Mereka tertarik dengan konsep adopsi yang memungkinkan mereka bisa terlibat langsung dalam penyelamatan orangutan. 

Setelah sesi berakhir, Tristan dan Gideon, perwakilan dari OSIS mendatangi tim COP untuk bertukar pikiran. Mereka sendiri sedang mengorganisasi kegiatan yang dinamai HOPE, dimana mereka meletakkan botol-botol kosong di berbagai titik di sekolah untuk diisi donasi. Mereka telah memilih 4 calon penerima donasi di mana rencananya salah satunya adalah COP. Kita juga berbicara lebih mendetail kira-kira apa yang bisa siswa lakukan untuk membantu. Wacana untuk melakukan kunjungan lapangan ke COP Borneo juga mencuat. “Program live in di perkampungan Dayak dan kunjungan pusat rehabiltasi COP itu sangat dimungkinkan, namun kami perlu mematangkan konsepnya supaya tidak mengganggu program rehabilitasi itu sendiri serta persiapan-persiapan lainnya. Saat ini yang paling langsung terasa manfaatnya adalah progam adopsi dan donasi. Ada orangutan Owi yang sedang mencari orangtua asuh, juga Happi dan Popi.” Terang Ebo, Education Specialist dari COP. “Owi, ada harapan (hope) dari Binus Serpong!” (EBO)

VISIT TO SCHOOL OF MENTARI CENGKARENG

COP school visits are usually held in the morning. But this time the schedule is 2 pm at Mentari school Cengkareng. Responding the invitation from the school, the COP team attended a sharing session on orangutan on Monday, April 29 2019.

Around 180 7-11 grade students gathered in the mini hall and all participants sat on the floor. They were very enthusiastic about the event. They were amazed by the facts presented, especially the threats faced by orangutans and other wildlife. The role of orangutans as a key species in maintaining the health and sustainability of forests also makes them believe that orangutans should  be in their natural habitat. As a gardener of the forest, they keep the ecosystem balanced. This session lasted 1 hour and a half which was filled with presentations and questions and answers.

After the event, Mr. Haris as the coordinator of the activities from the Mentari School spoke with the COP team that they wanted to hold a performance with an environmental theme, more specifically orangutan. “We now have a picture of where we want to donate,” said Pak Haris. Hopefully this collaboration continues, sir! (EBO)

KUNJUNGAN KE SEKOLAH MENTARI CENGKARENG

School visit COP biasanya dilangsungkan di pagi hari. Namun kali ini jadwalnya jam 2 sore dengan tujuan sekolah Mentari Cengkareng. Menjawab undangan dari pihak sekolah, tim dari COP hadir mengisi sesi sharing tentang orangutan pada hari Senin, 29 April 2019.

Sekitar 180 siswa kelas 7-11 memenuhi ruangan dan semua peserta duduk di lantai. Mereka sangat antusias mengikuti acara. Mereka tampak tercengang dengan fakta-fakta yang disajikan, terutama ancaman yang dihadapi orangutan serta satwa liar lainnya. Peran orangutan sebagai species kunci dan menjaga kesehatan dan keberlangsungan hutan juga membuat mereka yakin bahwa orangutan memang seharusnya tetap ada di alamnya. Sebagai gardener of the forest, mereka menjaga ecosystem tetap seimbang. Sesi ini berlangsung 1 jam setengah yang diisi dengan presentasi dan tanya jawab.

Setelah acara berlangsung, Pak Haris sebagai coordinator kegiatan dari Sekolah Mentari berbicara dengan tim COP bahwa mereka ingin mengadakan pertunjukan yang bertemakan lingkungan, lebih spesifik lagi orangutan. “Kami sekarang sudah punya gambaran ke mana kalau mau donasi,” Kata Pak Haris. Semoga kerjasama ini berlanjut ya Pak! (EBO)

 

IUCN CALLS FOR A MORATORIUM ON PROJECTS IMPACTING THE CRITICALLY ENDANGERED TAPANULI ORANGUTAN

IUCN is deeply concerned about ongoing and new threats to the Critically Endangered Tapanuli orangutan in Sumatra, Indonesia. IUCN therefore calls for the development and adoption of a conservation management plan for the Tapanuli orangutan based on an independent, objective Population and Habitat Viability Assessment before any projects potentially impacting the species advance any further.

IUCN also calls for the establishment of connecting corridors between the three forest blocks to which the species is confined, by converting 8,077 hectares from the ‘Non-forest’ to the ‘Conservation Forest’ land use category. Until then, further development of projects with an impact on the habitat and viability of the Tapanuli orangutan should be put under a moratorium.

The Tapanuli orangutan (Pongo tapanuliensis), described in 2017, is the first new great ape species to be discovered since the 1920s. Pongo tapanuliensis has evolved separately from other orangutan species for 670,000 years. Wholly confined to the Batang Toru Ecosystem, a mountainous tract of rainforest in the province of North Sumatra, it occupies an area of about 1,420 square kilometres. With an estimated population of fewer than 800, the Tapanuli orangutan is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened SpeciesTM. It is the rarest great ape species in the world. The relatively small population size makes the species especially vulnerable to extinction, as any loss of habitat or disturbance could make the population too small to remain viable.

Although large parts of the ecosystem are classified as ‘Protection Forest’, some critical sections of the Tapanuli orangutan’s range are still open to development, including energy infrastructure, mining and logging. Little is known about the Tapanuli orangutan’s life cycle and in particular its resilience to disturbance, and it is imperative that any activity that could potentially lead to the degradation of its habitat and direct threats to the population is carefully assessed and all measures taken to avoid any impact. Where knowledge of potential impacts is insufficient, the precautionary approach requires that impacts are studied and fully understood before any developments are licensed.

IUCN wishes to highlight that, with political will, conservation of great ape species is not only possible but can act as a major boost to local economies and livelihoods. There are several parallels between the situation facing the Tapanuli orangutan and the mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) in Eastern Africa. Over two decades of proactive, community-based conservation has seen this sub-species of the Eastern Gorilla increase by at least 50%, and Rwanda alone is now generating USD 200 million annually from eco-tourism, a large proportion of which is built around gorilla trekking.

IUCN stands ready to support Indonesia’s government agencies and financial institutions committed to prevent the extinction of the Tapanuli orangutan.

ORANGUFRIENDS YOGYA IN KINDERSTATION SCHOOL

This is not April Fools’ Day! This is the challenge to become Orangufriends. How can you talk in front of small children. Yes, how can you convey your knowledge about orangutans in an easy language for children under 6 years. OMG !!!

This morning, Yogyakarta Orangufriends was ready at the Kinderstation School which was founded by Cahaya Bangsa Utama Foundation, located in Maguwoharjo, Yogyakarta. Orangufriends has a myriad of ways to steal children’s attention, one of which is through games. Knowledge about orangutans is also inserted through the activities. Through screening films about wildlife, 90 Kiderstation students were invited to care more about wildlife.

“So … kids, Save the Orangutan from Delete! Yes…” (EBO)

ORANGUFRIENDS YOGYA DI KINDERSTATION SCHOOL
Bukan April Mop! Ini dia tantangan jadi Orangufriends. Bagaimana kamu bisa berbicara di depan anak-anak kecil. Iya, bagaimana kamu bisa menyampaikan pengetahuanmu tentang orangutan dengan bahasa yang mudah untuk anak-anak di bawah 6 tahun. OMG!!!

Pagi ini, Orangufriends Yogyakarta sudah bersiap di Kinderstation School yang didirikan Yayasan Cahaya Bangsa Utama yang terletak di Maguwoharjo, Yogyakarta. Orangufriends punya segudang cara mencuri perhatian anak-anak, salah satunya lewat permainan. Selanjutnya pengetahuan tentang orangutan pun diselipkan. Melalui pemutaran film tentang satwa liar, 90 murid Kiderstation diajak untuk lebih peduli pada satwa liar.

“Jadi… anak-anak, Save the Orangutan from Delete! ya…”

SCHOOL VISIT TO SOPHOS SCHOOL TANGERANG

Wednesday morning, March 20th 2019 Jakarta Orangufriends are already at Sophos School BSD, Serpong, Tangerang. The school visit was divided into two sessions, the first for grades 1 to 3, then continued for students from grades 4 to 6.

Orangutans are rare animals in Sumatra and Kalimantan. When trees are cut down, forests disappear, orangutans lose their homes and cannot find food anymore. Orangufriends invited students to prevent the extinction of orangutans. Besides orangutans, other wildlife must also be protected, including not to keep them as pets.

All students were very enthusiastic to listen to the explanations by the volunteers. Almost all children wanted to ask questions, they even come forward to ask. The discussion was exciting. Children shared their opinions on how to save wildlife, including not keeping protected wildlife and not visiting animal circuses.

During discussion, there was one very critical question from a student. “Do those who cut down the forest do not feel guilty for killing orangutans?” This question makes us more convinced that school visits are an important step for conservation because the future is in the hands of these young generations. Therefore, awareness of wildlife must continue to be shared with children so that they can love and look after nature from an early age. (EBO)

SCHOOL VISIT DI SOPHOS SCHOOL TANGERANG
Rabu pagi, 20 Maret 2019 Orangufriends Jakarta sudah berada di Sophos School BSD, Serpong, Tanggerang. School visit kali ini dibagi menjadi dua, yang pertama untuk kelas 1 sampai 3 kemudian dilanjutkan siswa kelas 4 sampai 6.

Orangutan itu hewan langka yang ada di Sumatera dan Kalimantan. Saat pohon ditebang, hutan menghilang, orangutan kehilangan rumahnya dan tidak bisa mencari makanan lagi. Orangufriends mengajak untuk mencegah kepunahan orangutan. Selain orangutan, satwa liar lainnya juga harus dijaga, termasuk untuk tidak dipelihara.

Seluruh siswa sangat antusias mendengarkan penjelasan para relawan. Hampir semua anak ingin bertanya, bahkan berbondong-bondong maju ke depan agar bisa bertanya. Diskusi berlangsung dengan seru. Anak-anak saling berbagi pendapat mengenai cara menyelamatkan satwa liar, antara lain dengan tidak memelihara satwa liar yang dilindungi dan tidak berkunjung ke sirkus satwa.

Saat diskusi, ada satu pertanyaan yang sangat kritis dari seorang siswa. “Apakah mereka yang menebang hutan tidak merasa bersalah karena sudah membunuh orangutan?”. Pertanyaan tersebut membuat kami semakin yakin bahwa school visit merupakan langkah penting untuk konservasi karena masa depan berada di tangan para generasi muda ini. Oleh karena itu, penyadartahuan mengenai satwa liar harus terus dibagikan kepada anak-anak agar mereka bisa mencintai dan menjaga alam sejak usia dini. (IND)

74 BULLETS: THIS IS A CRIME AGAINST ORANGUTAN!

This morning, Center for Orangutan Protection reported the case of orangutan that was injured with 74 rifle bullets to the Tipidter Bareskrim Police Directorate in Jakarta. “This is a serious crime, demanding the police immediately to thoroughly investigate the case and bring perpetrators before the law” said Hery Susanto, coordinator of the Anti Wildlife Crime COP.

The injured female orangutan was named Hope. Hope was forced to lose her child because of the very weak condition of the orangutan and malnutrition. While both of Hope’s eyes were blind due to air rifle bullets lodged in his eyes.

Based on Law Number 5 of 1990, Article 21 paragraph 2 point (a): “Every person is prohibited from arresting, injuring, killing, storing, possessing, maintaining, transporting and trading protected animals in a living condition.”. With this COP presents a criminal action report on the Sumatran Orangutan (Pongo abelii) that occurred in Bunga Tanjung village, Sultan Daulat District, Subulussalam, Aceh.

74 PELURU: INI KEJAHATAN TERHADAP ORANGUTAN
Pagi ini, Centre for Orangutan Protection melaporkan orangutan dalam kondisi terluka dengan 74 peluru senapan angin ke Direktorat Tipidter Bareskrim Polri, Jakarta. “Ini adalah kejahatan serius, mohon pihak kepolisian segera mengusut tuntas pelaku penembakan orangutan tersebut.”, ujar Hery Susanto, kordinator Anti Wildlife Crime COP.

Orangutan betina yang terluka tersebut diberi nama Hope. Hope terpaksa kehilangan anaknya karena kondisi anak orangutan tersebut yang sangat lemah dan mal nutrisi. Sementara kedua mata Hope buta akibat peluru senapan angin yang bersarang di kedua matanya.

Berdasarkan Undang-Undang Nomor 5 Tahun 1990, pasal 21 ayat 2 poin (a): “Setiap orang dilarang untuk menangkap, melukai, membunuh, menyimpan, memiliki, memelihara, mengangkut dan memperniagakan satwa yang dilindungi dalam keadaan hidup.”. Dengan ini COP menyampaikan laporan tindak pidana pada Orangutan Sumatera (Pongo abelii) yang terjadi di desa Bunga Tanjung, Kecamatan Sultan Daulat, Subulussalam, Aceh.

COP juga menyampaikan siap untuk memberikan bantuan teknis dalam penyelidikan kasus ini.

STOP TOURISM HUNTING IN PADANG PARIAMAN!

The Center for Orangutan Protection again calls all Orangufriends wherever you are to stop “Tourism Hunting” in Padang Pariaman, West Sumatra.

Again and again! Hunting events with air rifles aimed at squirrels and other pests (excluding protected animals) will be held at SMK 1 Aur Malintang in Padang Pariaman. The event which is organized by Pariaman Sniper Club in Nagari III Koto Aur Malintang Selatan sub-district IV Koto Aur Malintang offers door prizes in the form of LED TVs, Refrigerators, PCP Rifles and other attractive prizes. With only Rp. 20,000.00 registration fee per person, that includes lunch and 1 door prize coupon.
“COP refused and asked the shooting committee, South Malintang Nagari III Koto Aur, to cancel this event!”, Said Hery Susanto, coordinator of COP Anti Wildlife Crime.

Perbakin Pariaman city did not heed the Perbakin letter number 257 / SEKJEN / PB / III / 2018 for all Perbakin administrators that contain not to shoot animals with air rifles.
Pariaman Club Sniper also plans to violate Head of Police Regulation No. 8/2012 concerning Supervision and Control of Firearms for Sport Interest.

We request that the Director General of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry who has issued letter S.31 / PHLHK / PPH / GKM.2 / 3/2018 to enforce the rules of the National Police above.
Shooting animals with air rifles outside the shooting arena is against the law. (EBO)

BATALKAN BERBURU WISATA DI PADANG PARIAMAN
Centre for Orangutan Protection kembali memanggil seluruh Orangufriends dimana pun kamu berada untuk membatalkan “Berburu Wisata” di Padang Pariaman, Sumatera Barat.

Lagi dan lagi! Acara berburu dengan senapan angin dengan sasaran tupai dan hama lainnya (tidak termasuk hewan yang dilindungi) akan dilaksanakan di SMKN 1 Aur Malintang Padang Pariaman. Acara yang diselenggarakan Club Sniper Pariaman di Nagari III Koto Aur Malintang Selatan kecamatan IV Koto Aur Malintang ini berhadiah doorprize berupa TV LED, Kulkas, Senapan PCP dan hadiah menarik lainnya. Hanya dengan Rp 20.000,00 per orang, itu juga sudah termasuk makan siang dan 1 kupon doorprize.

“COP menolak dan meminta panitia pelaksana tembak tupai wisata Nagari III Koto Aur Malintang Selatan untuk membatalkan acara ini!”, tegas Hery Susanto, kordinator Anti Wildlife Crime COP.

Perbakin kota Pariaman tidak mengindahkan surat edaran Perbakin nomer 257/SEKJEN/PB/III/2018 untuk seluruh Pengurus Perbakin yang berisi untuk tidak menembak satwa dengan senapan angin.

Club Sniper Pariaman juga berencana melanggar Peraturan Kapolri No 8/2012 tentang Pengawasan dan Pengendalian Senjata Api untuk Kepentingan Olahraga.

Kami memohon Dirjen Gakkum KLHK tidak lupa telah mengeluarkan surat S.31/PHLHK/PPH/GKM.2/3/2018 untuk menegakkan aturan Kapolri di atas.

Menembak satwa dengan senapan angin di luar arena menembak adalah melanggar aturan hukum.
