IT’S TIME FOR PLAYING WITH CHILDREN IN THE REFUGEE CAMP

“Copies of the image to be coloured, done. I have put in the markers for colouring, too. Well, today I escaped from the routine of animals caring in the clinic and shelter”, said Novi Fani Rovika, volunteer of Animals Warrior for the Palu earthquake and tsunami disaster.

Novi had spent her full week feeding dogs and cats who were left and abandoned by their owners in the earthquake and liquefaction area of Patobo and Balaroa Villages. She took care of several confiscated animals in the BKSDA Central Sulawesi and Tahura Kapopo, Sigi District, Central Sulawesi. She also shared her time caring for dogs in Palu Dog Lover shelter and for cats at Mrs. Ana’s shelter, with around 80 cats. Now, it’s time to interact with children in the refugee camp, who still have time to think about cats and dogs in Patobo and Balaroa.

It starts with singing together, playing, telling stories and colouring images. Suddenly, 90 minutes passed. Their smile brings happiness to me. All the 20 elementary students from 4-5 grade finally can hold paper and colour markers again after the disaster. “Let’s color our life, kids!” said Novi with enthusiasm. (IND)

SAATNYA BERMAIN DENGAN ANAK-ANAK DI PENGUNGSIAN PALU
“Fotokopi gambar yang akan diwarnai, sudah. Spidol untuk mewarnai juga sudah kumasukkan tas. Baiklah hari ini melarikan diri dari rutinitas merawat satwa di klinik dan shelter.”, gumam Novi Fani Rovika, relawan Animals Warrior untuk bencana gempa dan tsunami Palu.

Setelah seminggu penuh mengisi hari-hari dengan memberi makan anjing, kucing di daerah bencana gempa dan likuifaksi kelurahan Patobo dan Balaroa yang ditinggal mengungsi penghuninya. Novi juga mengurus beberapa satwa sitaan di BKSDA Sulteng dan Tahura Kapopo, kabupaten Sigi, Sulawesi Tengah. Novi juga berbagi waktu merawat anjing di shelter Palu Dog Lover maupun kucing-kucing di shelter ibu Ana yang jumlahnya mencapai 80-an kucing. Saatnya berinteraksi dengan anak-anak di pengungsian, yang masih juga sempat memikirkan nasib kucing maupun anjing yang mereka tinggal di Patobo maupun Balaroa.

Dimulai dengan bernyanyi bersama, bermain, bercerita dan ditutup dengan mewarnai tak terasa 90 menit pun berlalu. Senyum mereka adalah senyum bahagiaku. Keduapuluh anak kelas 4-5 SD ini pun kembali bisa memegang kertas dan spidol warna kembali. “Ayo warnai kehidupan, anak-anak!”, ujar Novi dengan semangat.

THERE ARE 2 BULLETS IN THE BODY OF ORANGUTAN BABY

Monday, 15 October 2018 BKSDA Pos Sampit and the APE Crusader team evacuated a female orangutan baby in Santiung Village, Mentaya Hulu, Kotawaringin Timur District, Central Kalimantan. The condition of the baby was quite wild and nearly fool the team. The baby has wound and it became an important note for further examination when translocated to BKSDA SKW II Pangkalan Bun.

“Hopefully it’s not bullet wounds”, Paulinus Kristanto prayed along the way after evacuating the baby orangutan named Sutan.

This wound is a concern during a medical examination at the OFI clinic in Central Kalimantan. Baby Sutan was x-rayed and the result found two air rifle bullets lodged in his tiny body. One bullet on the left side of the head was removed.

Baby Sutan is found in a palm oil plantation in Kotawaringin Timur, Central Kalimantan. Orangutan babies aged 1-2 years are very dependent on their mothers, but Sutan was found alone with 2 bullets in his body. Is it true that the conversion of forests to palm oil plantations has ignored the high conservation value area? (IND)

ADA 2 PELURU DI TUBUH BAYI SUTAN
Senin, 15 Oktober 2018 KSDA Pos Sampit dan tim APE Crusader mengevakuasi bayi orangutan betina di desa Santiung, kecamatan Mentaya Hulu, kabupaten Kotawaringin Timur, Kalimantan Tengah. Kondisi bayi yang cukup liar sempat mengecohkan tim. Berkat ketelitian tim, kondisi fisik dengan luka menjadi catatan untuk pemeriksaan lanjutan saat diserahkan ke KSDA SKW II Pangkalan Bun.

Semoga bukan luka karena peluru, begitu doa Paulinus Kristanto sepanjang jalan usai mengevakuasi bayi orangutan bernama Sutan ini.

Catatan ini menjadi perhatian saat pemeriksaan medis di klinik OFI, Kalteng. Bayi Sutan pun di rontgen dan terlihat peluru senapan angin bersarang di tubuh mungilnya. Satu peluru di kepala bagian samping kiri berhasil di keluarkan.

Bayi Sutan ditemukan di perkebunan kelapa sawit di Kotawaringin Timur, Kalimantan Tengah. Bayi orangutan berusia 1-2 tahun sangat tergantung dengan induknya. Sementara Sutan ditemukan sendiri dengan 2 peluru yang bersarang di tubuhnya. Benarkah alih fungsi hutan untuk perkebunan kelapa sawit telah mengabaikan nilai konservasi tinggi kawasan tersebut?

ANIMALS WARRIOR SAVE 5 KITTENS IN PETOBO

A very tiring day. This is not the first time the team has been around feeding dogs and cats in Petobo, Central Sulawesi. Petobo has experienced liquefaction with severe damage and destroyed almost one village in Palu. “There are 21 dogs and 52 cats recorded today while we doing a street feeding,” said Faisal, animal volunteers who joined Orangufriends.

At the house in the corner seems like there are not only 3 dogs. One mother dog has wet nipples, that indicates she is still breastfeeding. The team braves themselves to enter the collapsed house. In the bathroom, between buckets of water, they saw baby dogs hiding. Their eyes are still covered, still only 1 week old. The homeowner, evacuated and has not returned yet. The team immediately coordinated with neighbours and conveyed the existing conditions and the possibility of evacuating the dogs.

Together with Mrs. Ana, the owner of a cat shelter in Palu, the Animals Warrior team headed to a house which was reported to have sick kittens. The search for cats is not easy. All the cats were roamed, so the team had to chase and catch them. There are 5 cats with wounds in their eyes. Now the five are in the shelter of Mrs. Ana.

ANIMALS WARRIOR SELAMATKAN 5 ANAK KUCING DI PETOBO
Hari yang sangat melelahkan. Ini bukanlah untuk pertama kalinya tim berkeliling memberi makan anjing dan kucing di daerah Petobo, Sulawesi Tengah. Daerah yang mengalami likuifaksi dengan kerusakan parah dan menghilangkan hampir satu kelurahan di Palu. “Ada 21 anjing dan 52 kucing tercatat pada hari ini saat keliling pemberian pakan.”, ujar Faisal, relawan satwa yang tergabung di Orangufriends.

Rumah pojok ini ternyata tak hanya ada 3 anjing di situ. Terlihat satu induk anjing dengan puting susu yang masih menyusui. Tim pun memberanikan diri memasuki rumah yang rubuh tersebut. Di kamar mandi, di antara ember air, terlihat bayi-bayi anjing bersembunyi. Matanya masih terseliputi, masih baru 1 minggu usianya. Pemilik rumah, mengungsi dan belum kembali. Tim segera berkordinasi dengan tetangga yang kebetulan ada, dan menyampaikan kondisi yang ada serta kemungkinan mengevakuasi anjing-anjing tersebut.

Bersama ibu Ana, pemilik shelter kucing di Palu, tim Animals Warrior menuju rumah yang dikabarkan ada anak-anak kucing yang sakit. Pencarian kucing tak semudah yang dipikirkan tim, datang ke rumah dan menemukan kucing tersebut. Ternyata kucing-kucing berkeliaran, sehingga tim pun harus berkejar-kejaran menangkap kucing-kucing tersebut. Ada 5 kucing yang mengalami luka pada matanya. Kini kelimanya berada di shelter ibu Ana.
