One individual Slowloris (Nycticebus coucang) who was voluntarily handed over by residents to North Sumatra BKSDA in July 2018 then told ISCP to be rehabilitated and the ISCP & team Plumploris gave his name Liz, before being released it was now in good condition, healthy and ready to be released home, namely its habitat in the wild.
In September the ISCP team has checked all the health or medical check-ups and currently ISCP is just waiting for the final completion of the release the Slow loris which is we put for awhile in pra release cage that just finish building by ISCP team and Aussie Angels with enrichment that resembles their habitat in nature by planting several types of feed plants in the pre-release cage.
If there is no obstacle the ISCP team plans to release Liz later in the middle or end of November 2018.
In particular, we say thank you for all the slow loris friends in Indonesiaand from overseas who continue to support and play a role in helping us to preserve the Sumatran slow loris by still being a donor in our fundraising at GlobalGiving fundraising with tittle fund raising "We,Kukang Sumatra(Slow Loris) need medical devices"
Besides helping donations, you can also take part in saving the slow loris by spreading this message. Invite the people closest to you not to be part of the slow loris trade chain by not buying and not make them as pets.
Best regards, Sincerely yours Rudianto Sembiring (Project leader)

Finally, the Indonesian Species Conservation Program (ISCP) released three individuals from the rehabilitation center of ISCP with the Natural Resources Conservation Agency of North Sumatra (BKSDA-SU) on Thursday 12 July 2018. 3 Individual slow lorises are from rescue and also from voluntary handover by local community to BKSDA who was also accompanied by ISCP in the last few months and sent it for rehabilitation at the ISCP center, especially slow lorises if kept or traded on the black market is usually cruel and very tortured both feed , health and their treatment of animals in narrow cages.
As for 1 leopard cat (Felis bengalensis) along with the release of slow loris on the same day and date yesterday is also the result of confiscate of BKSDA from local community.
Prior to the release of the 3 lorises, ISCP requested medical check up by a part time veterinary and a medical check-up at animal rescue center TWA Sibolangit clinic where the ISCP is still inadequate facilities and infrastructure of animal clinic support. For the installation of collar / telemetry we do before release in Dairi forest assisted by partime / perdiem veterinarian from BKSDA-SU too.

Finally We would like to thank all donors who have taken part directly or indirectly to us, hopefully fund raising in GlobalGiving that we are going to be realized will be distributed for the need of medical equipments of simple animal clinic support at ISCP center .
On June 29, 2018, ISCP visited the community of of Dusun Kinangkong Village Kuta Gajah ,Kutambaru District, Langkat regency of North Sumatra or is currently better known as tourist village Simolap marike. This village is directly adjacent to the Leuser National Park .
We are still in the process of approaching the communities of the above villages for the future to conduct wildlife awareness programs and the reforestation of ecotourism-based forest areas for their villages as well as "School Tree Planting and Nursery managed by junior high schools that will later be developed by ISCP in the area".
On last night's occasion we first approached the local by wisdom culture of Karo tribe and had to slowly approach the community leaders there as well as the OKP (youth organization) where the issue of an NGO friend who had entered the village failed due to misunderstanding with OKP local.For that ISCP trying to make a cultural approach to local wisdom so that later the conservation program can run well and safely in the village above ..
We are very grateful for the hospitality and natural discussions with local youth friends and local community leaders hopefully in Dusun kinangkong kuta gajah village, Kutambaru sub-district, Langkat regency of North Sumatra as part of the Gunung Leuser National Park . Hopefully this program plan in the future can run well later. Thanks also to all friends ISCP, Sahabat Kukang and all the friend donors who have taken part in donating in ISCP campaign "Help Us ...
