Tasikoki wildlife rescue centre’s budget
Tasikoki’s annual budget is roughly € 250,000. We use this money primarily to feed the animals, to fund the modest salaries of keepers/staff, and, last but not least, to pay for the veterinarian’s costs. Before the Corona crisis most of this money was raised by international volunteers, school visits and visitors to the ecolodge. This year everything has dramatically changed. The income sources have vanished and the animals of Tasikoki are now totally dependent on the generous donations.

What we do at Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue Centre
Tasikoki aims to:
- combat the trade in wild animals, confiscate illegally traded animals, provide care and release them into the wild when possible.
- offer high-quality care to animals that unfortunately cannot be released because, for example, they are unable to survive in the wild or because their habitat has been destroyed.
- provide education to the local population about nature conservation and wildlife.
- build and share knowledge on how to manage and sustain biodiversity in Indonesia.
