JAKARTA - The Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) asked the public to complete special licensing documents regarding wildlife breeding in Indonesia. "People who have wild animals, please have a special permit to captive animals. Please don't maintain those that are not allowed because they have to have a permit," said Director of the Utilization of Forest Services for the Conservation Area of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry Nandang Prihadi while attending the Biological Diversity Exhibition. Nusantara or Kehati Expo 2022 at Lapangan Banteng, Jakarta, quoted from Antara, Saturday, October 1. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry invites all levels of society, especially celebrities, to display good behavior by complying with the provisions of the applicable laws and regulations, especially related to the maintenance of wildlife. He said the government continues to disseminate information so that people who already have wild animals or want to have them must go through various predetermined procedures. In addition to socialization, the government also makes various repressive efforts to people who maintain wildlife that do not have a permit. "If the animal comes from legal and official captivity, of course it will be better. It is of course accompanied by a certificate which if it does not exist it (certificate) means it is illegal," he said. The Ministry of Environment and Forestry explained that activities to maintain protected wildlife without a permit could endanger the safety and health of their owners. Even though they have been treated for a long time, these animals still have wild and wild nature towards humans in certain situations. In addition, animals can be a medium for disease spread for humans. Although the potential for animals to infect humans is greater, it is possible that humans can also transmit disease to animals. Animal maintenance for pleasure purposes has been regulated in Article 37 of Government Regulation Number 8 of 1999 concerning the use of wild plants and animals (TSL). The regulation explains that wild plants and animals for maintenance purposes for pleasure can be carried out on unprotected species, and that breeding activities for protected and unprotected wildlife are regulated in Minister of Forestry Regulation Number 19 of 2005 concerning captive breeding of wild plants and animals, said Nandang Prihadi.
