Our goal

Stop wildlife poaching in Indonesia

Wildlife Watchdogs intercepts smugglers and thus stops the trade of wild animals. In recent years our foundation has offered shelter to rescued animals. After a recovery period, we released hundreds of monkeys, birds, turtles and dolphins into the wild.

In addition to shelter, we are increasingly focusing on the origin of animal suffering: wildlife trade.Stopping and prosecuting smugglers is a first important step in stopping illegal animal trade.

Dancing Monkeys rescue

In recent years we were able to release hundreds of dance monkeys after a rehabilitation process. The abuse that the macaques undergo to learn the tricks is cruel. We trace locations through videos of shows on social media. Together with the national police, we are dismantling training centers.

Kotok Sanctuary

Around 60 raptors learn to hunt again in enclosures between trees and above the sea. If we succeed, we release them with a GPS tracker. Some birds are unable to live independently and stay with us.

Lumba Lumba

In sea enclosures, rescued dolphins can learn to live independently in the sea again. For years they had to entertain tourists with tricks to get food. If the animals are strong enough, they leave the SeaPen to (re) discover the ocean.
