Hello and thank you for visiting our new blogspot! I decided to create a independent organization here in
on november 2006 Mr robert cambel from usa as a tourist visited medan zoo met with me(rudianto sembiring as a zoo keeper)and he sugested to make a non profit ngo's called nsaw(north sumatra animal welfare) for collect people who care and help condition and situation animals in medan zoo.
and on january 2007 nsaw was set up a registered legal charity in
we hope that people wanna and intresting to help animals in medan zoo,even this is so dificcult that zoo is organize by goverment .but me and mr robert need you know that animals in cage didn't know birocration,politic or people think of them.they just need love and care from us.

My name is Rudianto Sembiring. I write to seek your urgent help to improve the condition and the animal welfare problems in
I am working as an animal keeper (primate & ape division) at Medan Zoo in
I have no personal means or the resources to help the animals as I am paid equivalent to US Dollars 80 per month. The zoo is run on a minimum resource depriving the animals the welfare they so deserve. Bureaucracy, lack of awareness and poverty is the reasons why these animals suffer. There is no capital investment or political will to improve the situation. The animals cannot wait until the management does something and in the mean time the animals continue to suffer in their cages.
I would like to tap your heart and conscience. Perhaps there is something you can do to help. To help the animals, I also set up a very small stall in front of the zoo, selling some soft drinks and nuts to visitors. Very often I use personal money to buy food for the primates and apes.
I have set up a registered legal charity called North Sumatra Animal Welfare in
The animals badly need nutritious food, enrichment materials, medical treatment and better caging condition. Some of the cages are in bad repair without safety doors. I very much hope that one day the authority would do something to improve the welfare of the wildlife in
