August, September, October 2012 ‘Dedicated to
The Monkey team
WHERE DID ALL THE MONKEYS GO?
Throughout Jakarta Selatan we would find tens of dancing monkeys performing on the streets. Now, where
did all these monkeys go?
After intensive campaigning,
meetings and proposals, the
previous governor of Jakarta, Bpk
Fauji Bowo, agreed to start
confiscations of these primates in
collaboration with JAAN, and 36
monkeys were rescued since end
2011. These monkeys are all
undergoing health screenings in
quarantine, after which the
primates, if healthy, are socialized
in groups in the rescue center
Cikananga, near Sukabumi. All
rescued monkeys suffer from gum
and tooth infections as their teeth
were cut by the owners, and
many other serious health issues.
The ‘monkey team’ (see picture
above) takes daily care of them,
feeding them, cleaning their cages
and providing enrichment and
health checks. The team is leaded
by paramedic and primate expert
Josha Rijlaarsdam. For the care of
the monkeys in Cikananga center
JAAN receives support from AAP
rescue center (Netherlands) but
JAAN is in need of YOUR help to
allow us to continue campaigning
in Jakarta and built new facilities
for future rescued monkeys. we
see, now with a new governor,
also a come-back of new
monkeys on Jakarta streets and
we therefore really need to
prepare for new meetings,
campaigns and confiscations/
rescue operations. For these
confiscations we need the
approval of the new governor!
The main purpose of the rescue
operations is to halt the
unnecessary suffering of the
street monkeys and to rehabilitate
them back to natural, safe
habitats. Above you see Josha
with one of the lucky ones; a
After several meetings throughout
2012 between related parties,
JAAN received a letter with an
official statement from the airport
management Angkasa Pura II
which stated that they
immediately would halt the selling
of shark-fin at Jakarta
This is the result of a collaboration
between JAAN, Dive Mag Indo,
KKP (Indonesian fisheries
Ministry) Bpk Agus Budhiman
and Team who gathered all parties
responsible for the airport
management and trade) and
Change.Org who facilitated a
petition against the selling of
shark-fin at the airport. It is
important to start protecting
sharks and halt shark-finning.
In October 2012 JAAN actively participated in the confiscations of protected wildlife from
traders on the black market. One confiscation resulted in the rescue of 12 protected raptors
including the highly endangered Javan-Hawk Eagle (picture above, right) and the other
confiscation resulted in the confiscation of two tigers, a gibbon and 40 cockatoos, all
protected and endangered animals, protected under Indonesian law on Biodiversity Number
5, 1990. JAAN’s raptor center can be visited on the beautiful Kotok island, Thousand Islands.

We have so many stories to share
with you, here are a few. For more
information on animals rescued
please visit our website,
JAAN received an e-mail of a
caring person who had spotted a
mixed terrier in a very busy area in
Jakarta with his back legs tied.
As it turned out this poor dog had
been there already for 6 weeks,
according to the people living in
that area, and would hide in a
gutter next to a very busy street
during the day and after 11 o'clock
at night he would come out to
search for food.
First time our team went out we
were unable to catch him and we
all went home at 02.00 in the
morning dissapointed and worried.
Then 1 week later after several
attempts we finally managed to
We named him Archie...Archie
was in bad shape, severely
dehydrated, malnourished and
terrified of people. The inside of
his coat was matted and very dirty
so we shaved off all his hair. His
back legs were almost cut to the
bone because of the rope that was
tied around his back legs and the
deep wounds were badly infected.
It has been really amazing that
Archie survived living 7 weeks in
the gutter on the side of a very
busy road with his back legs tied!
Judging by the condition he was
in, he would probably not have
lasted much longer....
After a long recovery time Archie
proves to be a great happy and
healthy dog!! He is still a bit
suspicious of people he doesn’t
know, but he is very sweet when
he gets to know you!
Are you able to give this sweet
boy a forever home? Please e-mail

Pedro, the mixed
Pedro the mixed Chihuahua
For the past years owning a
pedigree pet has become very
fashionable and it sort of has
become a status-symbol.
Obviously owning a pet for
these reasons is wrong and at
the end its the pet who has to
pay the price....Pedro is one of
these examples, this
handsome little guy was
dumped in front of Animal
Clinic Jakarta. Luckily JAAN
has re-homed him already and
he now lives with a family who
Lexi, the neglected
Meet Lexi! Lexi is one of the dogs
that was rescued in October. His
previous owner could not be
bothered with taking care of his
skin problem (which was caused
by himself because of pure
neglect!!!) and decided to throw
him on the street. Lexi hung out
near the garbage bin for weeks till
some one reported him to us. He is
making great progress and is ready
for a new family who will shower
him with the love he deserves!
Please e-mail us at :

Happy ending for Boomer (pics above)
The reports and requests of rescue

overwhelming.....We are only a small
team and have financial limits. Although
we want to rescue them all, we try to
focus on those who need our help the
most. Boomer was one of those cases.
being kept by a family who lived in a big
house with many cars in their drive
way , but simply too cheap and
heartless to care for their dogs. Boomer
could barely stand when we rescued
him. They didn’t want to hand over
Boomer to us initially, but after going
back and forward they finally agreed to
hand him over. They said that he was
just old, but our vet said he was only
about 5 years . A thorough examination,
including a blood showed that he was
not that old, was not sick, but that he
was just badly neglected. He was 14 kg
only and since he is a labrador he was
suppose to be around 30 kg!!! It took
many months for Boomer to recover,
but luckily there was a happy ending to
this story! He now lives happily with his
new family and is looking great as you

Spermwhale died after attempted
After a three day rescue
involving over twenty volunteer
divers and the complete JAAN
team, the 12 meter long male,
juvenile spermwhale, who
stranded in Karawang on July 28,
died after all. To show him our
respect and also avoid any
misuse of the body by villagers,
we pulled “whaley’ to Kotok
Island where he was sunk. His left
overs can be observed by divers
visiting Kotok island and the
process of decomposing is very
valuable for the ecosystem.

JAAN FINALLY HAS A NEW LOCATION; WE NEED YOUR HELP!
JAAN has many projects running and most of
our animals are fostered at different places such as
JAAN members homes, at Animal Clinic Jakarta and
at homes of volunteers.
We have been searching for a good location for
a JAAN office but our financial situation did not
allow us to take this big step since all our donations
go to the care of our animals. A kind JAAN
supporter thought her property might be just the
right thing for JAAN to rent. WE AGREE !
This new location will allow JAAN to grow and
we are able to have several of our projects at the
same location which will be much easier for us to
manage. It will also open up many opportunities for
volunteers to come and help us on a regular basis.
The JAAN office will function as an information
and education center and a place where we can
have regular activities. Most importantly, this new
place will improve the living conditions of the
animals under our care!
To make this dream come true we need a lot of
help, we need:
1. Financial support to do some renovations
and adjustments to make the place ready for our
for your donation!

2. Fencing material and fiber to make
enclosures for macaques and slow lorises
3. Bamboo to make dog houses as well as to
cover walls to make it sound proof.
4. Brooms and tools to keep the garden need
5. One high pressure hose to keep all areas
clean and 3 regular hoses
6. Lots of cleaning supplies and tools such as
mops, brooms, buckets,floor wipers,
brushes,disinfectants,sponges etc and several
medium and large trash bins.
7. For our working area we need computers,
stationary, white boards, markers etc, a refrigerator
and freezer !
8. For our dogs and cats we need water and
food bowls, strong toys, leashes and collars, dog
beds, shampoo, food, towels, brushes, containers
for the food, toys and other supplies.
9. An Aqua dispenser
