Leaflets on the Handling of Slow Loris

May 22, 2008

The full-range of Genus Slow Loris is listed in the Appendix I of the Washington Convention (The prohibition of the international trade for commercial purposes) and designated as an international rare species of wild animals in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. It has been reported that many Genus Slow Loris have been smuggled and reared inappropriately without knowing their nature. The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) made easy-to-follow leaflets describing the nature and the appropriate handling of Genus Slow Loris.

Access to the leaflets: The leaflets (in Japanese) are posted on the following web page
