How I Became an Animal Trafficker

submitted by Huzzaz on 11/06/21 1

An ex-orangutan trafficker describes how orangutans are captured, bought and sold, the distances they travel to customers, and why there is such a demand. Hunters kill mother orangutans and steal their babies to supply to the exotic underground animal trade in Indonesia. The ex-trafficker describes the journey those babies make from their captors to buyers. They often travel via local bus routes, being packaged up and disguised in boxes, and transported across Indonesia. Informer is a series where we hear the anonymous confessions and insights of people on the inside of different industries, institutions and events.
