Siti is a young macaque who was rescued from the illegal pet trade in Malaysia. She is currently living alone at a wildlife park in Sabah and we urgently need your help to transport her back to her native home in Indonesia.
Siti is a moor macaque (Macaca maura), an endangered species endemic to the island of Sulawesi. Through no fault of her own Siti was illegally trafficked out of Indonesia into Malaysia where she was kept as a pet.
Intercepted by Sabah Wildlife Department and brought to Lok Kawi Wildlife Park for care, Siti is safe there but there are no other moor macaques for her to live with and she desperately needs to be with others of her own kind.
We have found Siti a new home at Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Centre’s Macaque Sanctuary in Sulawesi, where she will have the company of other macaques and be introduced into a small group of young rescued individuals. Moor macaques are Sulawesi’s most endangered species, so Siti is very important for their conservation and survival and we hope that in time Tasikoki can reintroduce her and the rest of the group back into the wild.
We urgently need your support to help move Siti as soon as possible and give her a chance to thrive. Please consider making a donation to help Siti, giving her the new life she deserves and protecting her species for the future.
