1:27 am
an enormous task. one animal is prized evolve in the levels a river i achieve mick. well monkeys that has human like features it's called the yaquis out here they live side by side with locals so if it's going to tip off that there is food being kept good legally in somebody's backyard and yet it's pretty clear you can gain by knocking that bushel while they're keeping it up with the tone there in fact. this is the birth. of it and then. the yaquis is one of more than 900 species protected by indonesian law but many locals have no idea do you ever let him off. for you know.
1:28 am
really how long i have been here when i'm with. and. so on with whom. do you think this is the right place. you would be best of it it would. be keeping yaquis like this could mean 5 years in jail or 100000000 repeal a fine that's more than 20 times the average monthly income he when. you move from what i've seen what i thought some of the notes in the idea. there was a part of the market. but it could be them all of them but at the same person i don't think money higher up. the ladder i want to be with him.
1:29 am
as it's a 1st offense today these are not escapes with a warning. when an animal is see it's brought here to the tacit craigie wildlife refuge but unless you love the president. it's the only refuge of its kind in the region and it's almost to capacity how many mechanics do you have here test the currency there is a 100. 7. wow from 5 different species in solo easy and in the most. critically endangered one in the mid 2. what condition do you think this little guys in this point. in the poor nutrition
1:30 am
scottish and. alright be careful we're going to get quite close over here so they might grab your hair and with it the refuge is enormous every kind of animal is here. from a rainy tends to sunday that's what's in this crocodile cock about health. and with a trade it is well yes all of them have been taken from traffic is or people who kept them illegally as pets. were the bird fans are now. accepting that free. press is still 1st arrested. many different species.
1:31 am
but there's a surprisingly biggest threat then the trade many of these animals are also hunted to be eaten. mostly they being from the wall or. meat so the hunters take it back home. kill it as a food when they have to be that's what they pick. a bad. so what trait is having the worst impact and why it. because it's that already kind of you cannot send him back to the wall. wow. that is an incredible new. from a lookout point really tells me the scale of the bushmeat trade will have impacts that reach far beyond this refuge so how bad is this then this is bad
1:32 am
because this is not sustainable all of these pieces are cuts from the wild and directly from the wall and if it's that keep going on 8090 percent of the wall like in seoul we see are facing expansions. were sleep walking into. a college goal is suster. to find out more about the bushmeat train i'm heading inland to visit what locals coal and extreme market. here in tom on the taste for bush may run skate. on. stage in local tradition just about every kind of animal is to say will.
