Why this petition matters

Started by P Holmes

"WE MUST KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!". Please visit petition updates below and for further information  Note: I am keeping this petition in it's original format for historical purpose and because it is a fact that the sun bears were starving and for all the other animals of Bandung Zoo who are being kept in captive misery and exploitation. The second video from this link showed that Kardit was, indeed eating his own feces!

For those of you who may have missed my updates, on October 9th 2017, I posted an update about the sun bears I am posting an addendum here for your convenience ... the sunbears are now being fed as stated in this October 9th update. They are being fed because all of you animal heroes signed and shared this pressure campaign. The sun bears and I thank you animal heroes!

If you have been following my updates, you will also know that the sun bears are not the only animals held in captive exploitative misery and we must continue to fight for all of them, giving them a voice by signing and sharing this petition. Please take some time to read through all updates to keep yourselves informed and up to date. As always, thank you for advocating for the animals of Bandung Zoo.

The Petition:

Sun Bears kept in the Bandung Zoo are so hungry they eat their own feces. One of the zoo’s giraffes suddenly died and was found to have 40 pounds of plastic trash in its stomach. The Bandung Zoo has been coined Indonesia’s “death zoo” and must be shut down immediately.

Perhaps the most upsetting was the recent loss of Yani, a 34-year-old Sumatran elephant, who was visibly weeping when she died shackled on the ground. She had been sick and neglected for too long. Yani’s species is critically endangered and she was one of about 2,800 of these majestic animals left.

Tourists often report that the confined animals look emaciated and weak. The zoo is overcrowded and doesn't have a veterinarian on hand, so when animals fall ill they are left to suffer like Yani. These are not the only horrific events to have occurred within the zoo, and won’t be the last.

Join me in imploring the President of Indonesia and his Minister of Environment and Forestry to shut down this zoo and relocate these animals to a conservation or sanctuary where they can be taken care of.

Boycott all zoos and boycott Indonesia. "We are the Spartacus for the voiceless" Please sign and share the following 2 petitions as they linked to this petition and thank you for advocating for the poor animals



We need your help. Please consider donating. Every dollar helps. thx
