Indonesia will relocate endangered animals, such as the tiger, from forests from which timber was being harvested. Many rare species such as tiger, elephant, sun bear, jungle cat, clouded leopard and the like live in the Sumatran forests

It is sad that they need to be relocated at all, but I am glad they aren't just killing them.

It is with such joy that I read this information, so much better to re locate them than to outright kill or let them die off on their own. Thanks Cher, Noted.

moving animals is not without risk. these animals like to live in their habitat because it is their home. Trying to corral and then drug animals is not without risk to them as well as those who attempt to get close. At least this step indicates that the country is beginning to decern that people wthoughout the world are concerned about what is happeneing . Thank you again Cher.

It would be better if they did not have to leave their home but being relocated is so much more humane than having to kill them...we shall have to wait and see if the move is successful or not I really hope it is.
Thanks Cher

A ridiculous proposition to a ridiculous situation. They need to leave that rainforest INTACT over there. When will Indonesia start seeing that the reason for all the Earthquakes, flooding , etc. of late is because they are still clearcutting Old-Growth forests. the animals need to be left in their terrain/domain! I realize we(developed nations)need to compensate them for not cutting down the forest, as sad as that is in itself, i wish we could come to an agreement already because Indo. ha s said it is willing to go along with that type of program on the rainforest. Thx Cher and happy Halloween!!

Noted, I agree Serge, but when it comes to the almighty$$$$ for a poor man who has a passle of Kids to feed, the Govn. tends to side with the commerce instead of the animals.The heartbreak is the fact that the poor man gets a pitience and the logging company makes Millions.My opinion is that any company doing business that causes stress on the fauna should be responsible for the care of said fauna.In Perpetuity!!!!!

well, maybe the relevant ministry/conservation groups aren't strong enough to stop the conversion of forest to other land uses, but perhaps they managed to negotiate relocation.

this is something that needs to be thought through much more clearly- it is definitely a plus that relocation is now being planned but relocation to an area where the habitat and conditions are inadequate is not a solution. If we were really true to the idea of conservation we would assist the authorities there to retain their originala habitat.
