Petition: Improve dreadful condition of animals at Lok Kawi zoo Malaysia

by: Malaysian Friends Of The Animals
recipient: Christina Liew, Environment Minister of Sabah, Malaysia

159,072 SUPPORTERS – 160,000 GOAL

The Lok Kawi Wildlife Park zoo is in the eastern Malaysian state of Sabah. Since opening in 2007, countless complaints about the state of its animals have been made by various organisations, despite claims by authorities that the zoo is also used to place rescued animals.

The zoo has again been exposed, revealing again the dreadful condition of how animals are kept. Photos of sun bears and tigers kept in horribly tiny night cages, injured animals and elephants mercilessly chained (one looks emaciated) out of public sight is now public knowledge, thanks to this online article. Besides this, enrichment, which is important for the mental and physical well being of animals, is never provided for any animal at the zoo.

Sign this petition to ask the new Sabah environment minister, Christina Liew, to take action and urgently improve the lives of animals at Lok Kawi Wildlife Park including the emaciated elephant. We also urge the minister to ask the zoo to take action and stop its animals breeding and cease importing animals so that resources can be used to improve the welfare and provide daily enrichment for all animals at the zoo.
