Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Center

Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Centre rescues, rehabilitates and releases animals taken from the illegal trade to give them a chance to return to the wild again. It is a place close to my heart and I am inspired by the work they do. However, since COVID-19 Tasikoki is now in a critical situation and are no longer receiving the financial support they need and soon closing will be inevitable. We cannot let this happen so let's do our bit for them! Thank you for your love and support!

Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Center

Folks, I am asking desperately for donations to Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue and Education Centre in North Sulawesi and call to volunteers to pack your bags and come over to help. Below is a list of species of Indonesian wildlife (mostly papuan species) confiscated in the Philippines and about to be returned to Indonesia. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry does not have any facilities capable to receive all these (130+) victims of the illegal wildlife trade and so they are going to be quarantined at Tasikoki prior to "possible" transfer to other locations in Indonesia.  Tasikoki is technically already full but doing its best to try and support this important matter.  Fortunately there is enough space at the rescue to add some additional enclosures, especially aviaries for the large number of lories, parrots, cockatoos and other birds that form the majority of those to be repatriated to Indonesia.Without more support from donors and volunteers, this is surely going to overburden the project and cause animal welfare issues to the existing wildlife as well. Support has already been requested from some big organisations, but was declined on the basis these are not highly endangered species with high priority for conservation and should just be euthanased according to IUCN guidelines. Indeed in the past, Indonesian wildlife smuggled to and confiscated in the Philippines have been euthanased there instead of repatriation to country of origin. However the Indonesian government still sees conservation value in all these (mainly lories, parrots and cockatoos) and persuaded UNDP to fund the cost of sending them home, and is also working on a solution for a Papuan wildlife rescue for the future funded by the national development agency (will take years to develop though).  Hence Tasikoki has to rely on animal welfare donations to be able to cope with this, as the government will not permit euthanisia as a management option.Tasikoki needs support for expansion of infrastructure (decent quarantine enclosures), veterinary and medical costs (disease screening and any necessary treatments), cost of feeding wildlife (support local farmers by purchasing their produce), and contemplating hiring additional staff keepers if funds are available (support the local community with paid jobs in conservation and animal welfare) - already for the existing wildlife in care, but especially desperate with the pending repatriations from the Philippines.Estimates of the current needs include (but not limited to);- Additional quarantine block of 20 aviaries for large parrots and cockatoos $3000- Additional quarantine block of 9 aviaries for raptors $2000- Additional block of 2-4 hornbill aviaries $2000- Additional 4 cassowary pens $2000- Small reptile enclosures $1000Total Infrastructure Costs = $10,000- Feeding costs for at least 3 months @$2500/month- Additional staffing needs (one vet and 2 keepers) @$1000/monthTotal Costs of Care for 3 months = $10,500 (although care likely needed for up to a year or so)- Veterinary health screening (laboratory) costs for clearing wildlife from disease to be able to send back to their original habitat @$100/individual- DNA testing of certain individuals to determine exact subspecies and hence origin to select the correct region/island to return them @$200/individual- Translocation costs to return healthy wildlife back to Papua and elsewhere for  subsequent sanctuary or release @$100/individualEstimated Total Additional Costs = [100 x (100+100) = $20,000]  + [200 x 50 = $10,000] = $30,000Any and all help for covering these costs is gratefully appreciated and desperately needed. From $10/month contributions to one off contributions of $1000 and all in between, all donations are needed and make a difference to the lives of these confiscated victims of the illegal wildlife trade.Note from the Philippines;Out of 450 individuals seized in Apr 2019, only 132 individuals are alive as of 12 Nov. The list does not include the surviving wildlife from seizures in Mar 2018 (312 individuals) and Oct 2019 (338 individuals). The repatriation is delayed on hold, maybe with a view to include the additional 300+ confiscated in October.Anyone interested in volunteering at Tasikoki can write to volunteer@tasikoki.org and get an info pack and further information on how to arrange it. Note that you will need to start the process at least a month in advance of travel due to special visa requirements for volunteer work in Indonesia.

Hey!Arie and I are working in the winters to allow travel in the summers. Besides being an amazing way to work & play every year, it gives us the opportunity to visit and volunteer some really impressive projects & stay there several months. This way we hope to get a real sense of what is going on in the world today, and what we can do to resolve some of its biggest problems.WE are spending until november @TASIKOKI wildlife animal rescue, and visitor & education centre in North Sulawesi INDONESIARescue Centres such as Tasikoki are always heavily reliant on the generosity of others for adequate funding. Since we have arrived here, we have learned that the 400+ creatures living at Tasikoki can't be properly fed with only the food supply sourced on site (which constitutes about 10% of their total daily intake). The remainder of their hunger is stilled by buying local produce, at an average cost of $200,- per day. JUST to keep their bellies full - and you know love goes through the belly..Now isn't that some food for thought; knowing that Tasikoki does not generate its own income to supply these animals with their daily meals, yet still $200 per day needs to be found to keep everyone happy. Therefore, we would like to raise funds, to allow for 1 YEAR of food for all animal friends on site. For those donating and interested in staying in the loop of our progress, the animal friends and their favourite foods, we offer an exclusive update with films, photo's, updates, information and the latest gossip going around Slow Loris Lane.When you are about to slip into your next food coma- brought about by an excessive bout of binging on your favourite foods, think about the beautiful animal friends that inhabit this rescue centre, and maybe opt to put some money into our fundraiser.We promise it will be more satisfying than any food could ever be.Thank you! OKE DOEI! x

Caring for our own native wildlife is important but I believe it is just as important to educate the wider community on how disastrous of an impact the illegal wildlife trade is having on our planets wildlife.  This wildlife is also faced with the issues of deforestation, pollution and climate change and adding all of these impacts up makes the future look pretty bleak.  I was lucky enough to come across a FaceBook page by Tasikoki Wildlife Sanctuary one day it led me to a visit to the Sanctuary in Nth Sulawesi and it opened my eyes to impacts all of the above were having and how under resourced this sector is.  So much money goes into the massive palm oil companies and the timber trade, Oil companies and running large scale industrial estates.Where the impacts of those industries come out and start effecting our wildlife and our planet are concerned there is very little money by comparison and the wildlife and environments suffering expands.I believe this practice is inherently wrong and I want to be able to empower the people and places that are having to deal with these impacts on our wildlife and environment.  These amazing and inspiring people are those on the ground, doing the work, dealing with visas and families and they are so under resourced and under funded.  If these guys can do what they do on a bigger budget, imagine the incredible impacts they could have on our planet!

Please support the Sulawesi macaques at Tasikoki until they are able to be released to a suitable habitat.Hey folks, we need your ongoing support, especially as we are receiving less and less volunteers in Indonesia.Various hurdles, both technical and political are preventing us from getting any approval on a release site for various groups of Macaca nigra, Macaca nigrescens, Macaca hecki and Macaca maura, which now in total already number more than 100 individuals.  Apart from a few births in our critically endangered M.nigra group, all the macaques at Tasikoki have been rescued as illegal pets, likely taken into captivity when their mothers were trapped/shot and eaten.Tasikoki needs support to feed and care for these monkeys through rescue, quarantine, health screening, restoring health conditions, rehabilitating monkey behaviour and socialising into suitable groups, without any financial support from conservation organisations or primate welfare groups (they either do not support rescue centres or Sulawesi primates).  Tasikoki only has two fulltime keepers to manage all these monkeys in its primate centre and a daily feeding cost in the region of $120/day, that is $3,600/month, despite all that we forrage for onsite.  Therefore we are trying to raise for the annual cost of $50,000 including keeper costs. If we can succeed to get 1000 donations of $50, then we have a chance to focus efforts on the release programmes instead of struggling to care for the population on-site.  If anyone is able to make a larger contribution over $2,000, then please contact Tasikoki directly via donate@tasikoki.orgMany thanks for your support, in donating and sharing our cause amongst your friends and family.A separate fundraiser will be published soon to directly support the release projects for M.nigra and M.nigrescens which are on the horizon.

I am fundraising for a one week trip that 5 friends and I will be doing in March at Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Center in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. The whole trip is planned by us, from the booking of flights to the building of the animal enclosures, and no adults will be coming with us. I have personally chosen to support this project as animals have always been a passion of mine, and I look forward to working with the animals and to support the conservation of the wildlife here. We will be working with endangered animals such as sun bears and orangutans, which are species that often fall victim to the wildlife trade. I hope to learn more about the protection of these species and how we can actively help even after we leave the rescue center.

I have always love animals and  been an advocate of animal welfare which is why I am excited to help out at Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Center. Whilst I have always supported causes that help animals, I have never been actively involved in helping animals on a daily basis. I am therefore looking forward to visiting the Wildlife centre and being able to truly make a difference in some animals lives whilst learning more about, and how to support animal welfare.

I am currently planning a one week trip with 4 friends to the Tasikoki Wildlife Center. I've always been a supporter of Animal Welfare, in middle school, i was part of a global concern called PAW (Promoting Animal Welfare). Here we raised money for animal shelters and other animal welfare related causes through events such as bake sales. We hope to learn more about animal welfare in this trip as well as help out as much as we can at this center.

This wildlife centre brings abused and trafficked animals to a safer and more environmentally friendly place where volunteers can help build enclosures, feed animals, and much much more! In March, 4 friends and I will travel to Manado, Indonesia where we will volunteer at Tasikoki for 5 days. This will be a very new and challenging experience and by supporting me through funds, I will be able to embark on this trip. We as a group have planned and initiated this trip as the protection and conservation of animals are things that appeal to us. Tasikoki is an incredible rescue center where animals are rehabilitated and given a safe space to thrive and survive. Even just a small donation would allow me, as well as my friends, to embark on this trip! Thank you :)

Paul and I have been travelling South East Asia for 8 months, volunteering at various conservation projects on the way. We are volunteering at Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Center for 2 months, educating ourselves on the huge problems facing not only Sulawesi's wildlife, but the world's. All of the animals here at the center are confiscated wildlife who have been illegally trafficked from their homes.Tasikoki is inundated with animals, and as the centers' main income is from donations and volunteer contributions, there isn't always alot of spare cash.We are hoping that, with the generous help and donations from you all, the slow loris's can be moved into much better enclosures. These enclosures need alot of work doing to them, and we need funds desperately to aid Paul and myself to achieve this goal.We will post updates regularly so you can see how your money is helping the project to progress.Thankyou so much in advance, and remember....every little helps!

Tasikoki deals with wildlife confiscated along the smuggling route from Indonesia to the Philippines via North Sulawesi.We usually get wildilfe from Papua and the Molluccans passing through here, but occasionally also from Sumatra, Java and Kalimantan.On the 17th of September 2015, the authorities in North Sulawesi intercepted a shipment of 23 Javan Slow lorises and 2 Javan Langurs.These were eventually transferred to Tasikoki for care (sadly some lorises died from the trauma and lack of food/water).For the lorises, we are working with International Animal Rescue, and hope the Indonesian Wildlife Authorities will permit the transfer of primates to their excellent Slow Loris centre in Bogor.Likewise for the langurs, we are working with the Javan Primate Centre of the Aspinall Foundation in Bandung.There is much redtape to make this work, in the meantime we need to cover the cost of care of these special primates at Tasikoki.Your donation here will go directly to the support of these critters, as well as Hanoman and the other long-tailed macaques at TasikokiIf you donate USD 100 or more, you can name one of the 19 Javan slow lorises (Nycticebus javanicus) - just put your chosen name in the comment field (most are male, try to use unisex names) and once all are named, we will send all donors a PDF certificate of adoption with the name you have chosen.  A nice gift to forward someone for Xmas or upcoming birthday perhaps?If we achieve to raise enough funds through this appeal, we will hopefully be able to afford to send many home and build some better enclosures for those who could not get a ticket to Java.

Example costs for our rescue work here:USD 50 gives us fuel and supplies to run our rescue vehicle to Manado, Forestry Police Office, harbour or other city location and back to the rescue centre.  Therefore USD 5000 is enough for average of 2 rescues / week for the whole year.USD 100 gives us almost enough to pay for the blood tests / quarantine health-screening / vaccination costs of one monkeyUSD 200 gives us enough budget to rescue and feed a macaque for the duration of quarantineUSD 300 gives us enough to rescue and feed and care for a dozen cockatoos for two monthsUSD 500 supports the rescue, quarantine health-screening and initial care for a critically endangered Sulawesi Black Crested macaqueUSD 750 helps us build much-needed transport enclosures and renovate/maintain our quarantine facilitiesUSD 1250 helps fund a two month wildlife crime investigation to gather legal evidence on trade/possession for the authorities to follow upUSD 3000 is enough to guarantee a year's salary for an animal keeper, the essential staff needed for consistent care of rescued wildlifeUSD 7500 Covers all of the above and secures our budget to respond to rescues when needed

My name is Steven Stilwell and I am a recently graduated Biological Anthropology student from Western Washington University in the United States. Right now I am currently on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia doing research on orangutan enrichment and captive welfare at the Tasikoki Wildlife Centre. Here at the centre we have two male orangutans, Bento and Is both of whom were rescued from the illegal wildlife trade as adolescents. Now unable to be released into the wild they must spend the rest of their lives in captivity. Orangutans are highly intelligent animals and long periods of inactivity and boredom can be psychologically detrimental to their well being. The solution to this problems is to provide activities that are cognitively challenging and allow them to engage in new and exciting things.We need your help in funding these enrichment activities as well as supporting the students and staff conducting the research.  Thank you for your support and consideration!

Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by this page:) ( ακολουθεί και στα ελληνικά) A few years ago I had the opportunity to volunteer at a center that has ever been very dear to my heart: Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Center in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. The dedicated team of Tasikoki has saved thousands of wildlife, and is currently the home for more than 300 animals, which are currently being rehabilitated. The center is currently in need of a Rescue Vehicle. Please help me raise money for this cause! I am not big on asking for money from people, but in this case, I know that all the money that Tasikoki receives, goes to a great cause, which I have personally seen in action. Feel free to share this page, donate (every little bit helps!) or even fundraise for Tasikoki. Yours truly, Anna Katogiritis ******************** Γεια σας! Σας ευχαριστώ που σταματήσατε στη σελίδα! Το κέντρο διάσωσης άγριων ζώων "Τασικοκι" στο νησί Sulawesi της Ινδονησιας, χρειάζεται να αγοράσει ένα όχημα μεταφοράς των ζώων. Το Τασικοκι έχει σώσει χιλιάδες άγρια ζώα (από ουρακοτάνγους, μέχρι ότι μπορεί να φανταστεί ο νους σας!). Αυτή τη στιγμή στεγάζει 350 ζώα, μερικά από τα οποία θα απαλευθερωθούν σύντομα. Το κέντρο βασίζεται καθαρά σε δωρέες, μέσω των οποίο πληρώνονται οι ντόποιοι υπάλληλοι που εργάζονται εκεί, το φαγητό των ζώων και η συντήρηση των κτηρίων. Εχοντας δουλέψει στο συγκεκριμένο κέντρο μπορώ να σας εγκυηθώ ότι ακόμα και το ένα ευρώ που θα προσφέρετε (ελπίζω!) θα χρησιμποιηθεί για την βοήθεια των ζώων και μόνο. Αν έχετε έρωτήσεις, είμαι εδώ για να τις απαντήσω, και αν θέλετε να επισκευθείτε το κέντρο ως εθελοντές, μπορώ να σας βοηθήσω με όποιο τρόπο μπορώ! Σας ευχαριστώ! Με εκτίμηση, Αννα Κατωγυρίτη *********************** If you would like to learn in more detail what Tasikoki does, there is a wonderful article that explains everything , here: http://www.masarang.nl/en/news/index.jsp?USMID=201&newsitem=655
