Thailand's kickboxing orangutans

This zoo say's it is held legally accountable. It is not. In 2006 it was found with over 100, mostly young orangutans. 48 were confiscated and returned to Indonesia - thanks to Nature Alert and COP supporters; no one was ever prosecuted. If you were to visit the zoo you might wonder where many of the other rare mammals and birds came from.

The 11 orangutans we are currently campaigning to save from Thailand, if we were to give up (which we won't) could end up in disgusting shows like this.
