ProFauna Release Animal Back to the wild



Until 2004 the number of wildlife which have been released to protected natural habitats is 45. These are: Javanese ebony langurs, leopard cats, hornbills, deers, and peacocks. They were released in the Wildlife Reserve at the Hyang mountain range in East Java. The release site is considered safe from the reach of ordinary men. It takes two days demanding climb to reach the top. The release operation is normally assisted by some ProFauna volunteers.

The release operation has to be carefully planned to include suitable site survey, crating and boxing of each species, veterinary preparation, transport by car, helicopter and by foot, supplies and personnal.
