There are approximately 61 captive facilities in Indonesia, 52 of these are Indonesian Zoo Association (PKBSI) members. Current criticism of Indonesian zoos is high, with high profile cases being circulated within the media and social media and facilities often listed as some of the worst zoos to visit.
Distressing images and reports continue to detract from any efforts actually being carried out by PKBSI and the zoos themselves to improve animal welfare. Wild Welfare is working with the PKBSI and The South East Asian Zoos Association (SEAZA) to improve captive animal welfare through training, assessments and support. We are providing veterinary and enrichment training with partners and working directly with a number of Indonesian zoos.
