Sun Bears kept in Bandung Zoo, West Java, Indonesia are so hungry they eat their own dung. These are not the only animals discovered in horrific conditions in this zoo.

Yani an endangered Sumatran elephant was this zoo's latest victim. In May of 2016, she died crying, and shackled in chains. She was only 34 years old. In 2014, a giraffe suddenly died and was found to have 40lbs of plastic trash in it's stomach.

The animals in this zoo rely heavily on food donations to survive with no on site veterinarian. The carnivores only get fed because New Zealand sends over donation of meat twice a week! Activist groups are also asking for donations to feed the animals. This is not how a zoo should be run. Whilst food donations is a good and very admirable, it is also a double edge sword and perpetuates the cycle of apathy from the Indonesian Government officials to do nothing.

Many zoos in Indonesia are also found to be in deplorable conditions eg Surabaya Zoo. There are numerous and various online petitions to shut down Surabaya Zoo and one of the petitions has gathered close to 1 million signatures. All petitions have thus far been ignored!

The most humane action for the President of Indonesia and his Minister of Environment and Forestry is to enforce the law and shut down this zoo and relocate these animals to a conservation/sanctuary centers where they can be properly taken care of.

I URGE ALL OF YOU TO BOYCOTT INDONESIA AS YOUR VACATION DESTINATION. BOYCOTT INDONESIAN MADE PRODUCTS UNTIL JUSTICE IS DONE AND POSITIVE CHANGE BROUGHT ABOUT FOR THESE POOR INNOCENT ANIMALS. Boycott all zoos.
