Currently Tongki consumes his pool water which will be contaminated with his own urine and defecation, left over food and possible items thrown into the pool by visitors. This is dangerous to Tongki's health and we would like to see this rectified with immediate effect.
Our second concern is the protruding scaffolding pipe within Tongki's exhibit, this is a hazard as it could cause Tongki injury it serves no purpose and should be immediately removed.
In summary, We feel that Everland zoo and Samsung are failing Tongki's welfare needs on every level: physically, psychologically, socially and behaviourally. As Tongki's carers it is Samsung's and Everland's responsibility to make his life as fulfilled as possible.
We are holding our second tweet storm for Tongki between 25th -28th March. Please join us and help us continue in our efforts to secure Tongki better conditions. Please all share and sign our petition below.
Ideally we would like to see Samsung and Everland carry out the following actions.
