  • Removing snares helps to save wildlife in the Leuser Ecosystem!
Here Jason from the @sumatranrangerproject is showing us a recent trap that he’s found, that would easily trap and injure a sunbear or tiger, leaving them to die a slow and painful death. 
These traps are made from rudimentary materials that are easily found in Indonesia, like this one made from a motorbike cable tied to a branch. This may sound simple but it’s also very effective - once an animal steps inside its paw or leg will be caught and it will be unable to get away. 
I’m so proud of the rangers and the work they do – and you should be too, as it’s your zoo visits that help to support it. So thank you!
