The Rescue Center
by Nikki Dodd
Set against the backdrop of the illegal wildlife trade, The Rescue Center offers a glimpse into the daily activities of Cikananga Wildlife Center in Indonesia. Cikananga operates on the front lines of the wildlife crisis, rescuing animals from an abusive multi-billion dollar, global industry. Victims of the trade are captured from the wild, often as babies, and are sold as pets, bushmeat, dancing monkeys, or ingredients in traditional Chinese medicine.
