Asto and Asih were rescued by our Sumatran Rescue Alliance (SRA) and local BKSDA (Nature Conservation Agency) in April 2021. They were being held illegally at a suburban home on the Indonesian island of Java. After their confiscation, medical checks and rest, they were flown to Sumatra with members of the SRA and then driven to the SRA centre in North Sumatra.
Asto was estimated to be approximately four years old, and Asih two years old when they were rescued. Asto weighed 7kg and Asih 5kg. Asto is quite dominant over Asih however she is quite patient when little Asih takes her food. They both love watermelon and bananas and dislike sweet potatoes. They absolutely love milk however they can both tell if any medicine has been mixed with their favourite foods or milk.
Asto and Asih have commenced Jungle School together in the forested grounds of the SRA rescue centre. They both enjoy playing and climbing in the young trees which is very encouraging for the beginning of their rehabilitation journey. The carers need to use milk to coax the girls back to them so they can return to the safety of their enclosure overnight.
By adopting Asto and Asih today, you are helping fund our activities to protect her and her friends from the threats they face. You will receive regular updates on their progress as they are cared for in our facilities, with the hope of eventually returing to the jungle.
