Rangers Rescued Slow Lorises from Smugglers

Our forest rangers ambushed a trafficker smuggling 4 rare slow loris primates out of the Southern Cardamom rainforest, which ended up in a mad pursuit where the man, desperate to escape, threw the animals on the road at 40 miles an hour in front of incoming traffic and sped off. The rangers were able to save the primates, but one unfortunately died.

The survivors were given immediate first aid and then carried to our wildlife rescue center in Phnom Tamao for care. They are doing with fine now and we hope to release them back into the wild once they have fully recovered.
