Javan Slow Loris

Scientific Name
Nycticebus javanicus

Conservation Status
Critically endangered

Javan slow loris occur exclusively in Java, Indonesia

The Javan slow loris's distribution, which is endemic to Java, undergoes significant fragmentation and substantial land use for residential, economical and agricultural purposes. The continuous habitat loss is threatening its existence in the wild. Besides that, despite being protected under the Indonesian Law, the Javan slow loris is regularly captured to supply pet trade and medicinal purposes, which is a contributing factor to its diminishing population. Their slow-moving nature, choice of sleeping spots and nocturnal habits make Javan slow loris easy prey to the hunters.
