The Department of National Parks, Wildlife, and Plant Conservation has taken under its wings, several
orangutans from wildlife trafficking cases, where they are taken care of at Khao Prathab Chang Wildlife
and Breeding Station at Ratchaburi Province. Indonesia has expressed their intention to have the seized
orangutans be sent back to their origin but due to the regulations of Thailand at the time, in which all
seized property that has no clear violator and ownership must first wait for a period of five years before
they can become legal possession of the country, after which the procedure to send them back can officially begin.
For several months until very recently, a gray pall of haze hung over Singapore, a result of uncontrolledwildfires and peat
land hotspots in neighboring Indonesia. And as Anuj Jain from the National Universityof Singapore (NUS) conducted his
research on tropical butterfly conservation in the city state’s forests andparks, he noticed something wrong: less of the
insects were fluttering around. In addition, animal activity asa whole had dropped markedly.Jain was not alone in his
observations. Singapore’s captive birds were singingless, and researchers in a rooftop garden study observed lower bird
activity on smoky days. But besides thesesuperficial observations nobody could be truly sure how living organisms and the
larger ecosystem were beingaffected by the toxic haze.

A new TRAFFIC report questions the viability of captive-breeding operations given the go-ahead to produce millions of live
Tokay Geckos a year for export from Indonesia. According to a report, it would currently be impracticable to produce such
numbers from existing captive breeding operations. The geckos would inevitably end up being sourced from the wild in order
to fill up the yearly quota.Tokay Geckos have been traded for use in traditional medicine for centuries throughout Asia, but
experienced a sudden and massive surge in demand in 2009 following rumours they could cure HIV/AIDS. The World Health
Organization has since issued statements denying this claim. The species is also popularly kept as a pet.
