Sumatran Slow Loris Nycticebus hilleri


Sumatra, Indonesia

This wide-eyed and cute slow loris species lives in areas such as lowland forest, sub-montane forest, and montane forest in the Ulu Masen (Kasia et al. 2011). A key threat to the Sumatran Slow Loris is habitat loss (Kasia et al. 2011). They are easy to catch when forest is converted to palm oil and other crops.

The #Sumatran #SlowLoris is endangered on @IUCNredlist due to #palmoil #deforestation and the pet trade. Help them with a #Boycott4Wildlife on brands destroying their rainforest home. Find out more

Sumatran Slow Loris is listed as Endangered as there has probably been a more than 50% reduction in population over three generations (approximately 21-24 years), based on their past and predicted future abundance in the pet trade and extensive habitat loss throughout Sumatra.

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail industry and influence big palm oil to stop cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join me and stand up for the animals with your art and your supermarket choices!
