Health check of slow lorises

 The last days we have been capturing our lorises again for a health check. After three nights we already caught 10 animals, a record!


Yesterday we re-captured Tahini! We checked if her collar is still fitting her and not too tight. In order to do that we used a pencil and stuck it under the collar. It fit and was not too tight :-) Tahini was ready to go back into her favourite gum tree after a few minutes!


The whole capturing team helping to tidy up after a releasing Tahini! Left to right: Johanna, capture expert Mr. Ade, our trackers Mr. Dendi, Mr. Adin and Aconk, volunteer Mark and volunteer Sophie
