Face to face with a tiger… in Australia?

As part of a Conservation Cultural Exchange arrangement, four tiger patrollers from Indonesia recently visited project partner Australia Zoo. For a bunch of guys who spend their lives protecting Sumatran tigers, it was the first time any of them had been able to get up close and personal with a live tiger. The trip opened their eyes to many other things too, and Andi Siswanto (with some help from his fellow travellers M Rosali, Jefri Yulius and Seven X) was inspired to document some of his thoughts in this lovely blog…

New facebook options – Like, Dislike or Go to Jail

Dr Ulrike Streicher is one of the few wildlife veterinarians in Indochina and one of Vietnam’s longest standing primate specialists. Uli splits her time between her two roles as Fauna & Flora International’s Vietnam Primate Programme Manager and as a wildlife veterinarian for primate and wildlife rescue centres across Indochina with support from the Eva-Mayr Stihl Foundation.

A recent posting on a popular social media forum has had huge impact and caused outcry on a global scale. When Uli sent the posting and pictures to the office in Cambridge, partly to let us know and partly to help explain what life can be like working in conservation on the ground, we were moved beyond words. Not only at the fact that human beings have done this, but that this is not uncommon. This despicable, unnecessary brutality is what Uli and her team, and others working not only in Vietnam but many other countries around the world, deal with every single day. As Uli is dedicated to the conservation of primates, we asked if she’d mind sharing this story and her thoughts with our staff around the world, and now we share it with you, because this needs to be told.
