Between 2000 and 2002, eight Wildlife Rescue Centers have been established in Indonesia to stimulate and assist law enforcement of illegal protected wildlife trade, and to facilitate the placement of confiscated animals. This was part of the implementation of CITES, which states that each signatory country has the commitment to establish animal rescue centers (Resol. Conf. 9.10).
Cikananga covers an area of 14 hectares and professional facilities have been constructed on site: a large animal clinic, office and supporting animal facilities. With an area of 14 Hectares and a total of 3,750 animals rescued, PPSC was the largest wildlife rescue center in Indonesia, and had a leading position in Indonesia’s wildlife rescue programs.
The center is proud to be currently one of the largest wildlife rescue centers worldwide and strives to obtain international standards, both in professionalism as well as animal welfare.
PPS Cikananga is to support the government of Indonesia to save and conserve wildlife protected in a professional manner, and of benefit to the local communities. The main activity of our center is to provide for facilities and man power to facilitate confiscated wild animals and re-introduction to their habitats. Other activities include: rescuing of wild animals, maintaining of wild animals which are evidence for law suits, rehabilitation of wildlife, conservation awareness and education programs, conservation and wildlife trainings, and awareness & education programs. Cikananga opposes any collaboration with institutions which exploit animals.
