Ask the Indonesian government to place regulations on the treatment of wild Asian palm civets and ban the inhumane production of civet coffee!
The very popular and expensive Indonesian civet coffee is still being produced despite proof of inhumane conditions.
In order to harvest the coffee, farmers feed seeds of coffee berries to imprisoned Asian palm civets, a beautiful wild cat-like mammal, and gather the seeds again from their excrement. The civets are captured from the wild, torn from their families, held in tiny, sometimes dark, cages, and are often force-fed the berries. There are currently no regulations in place on how to treat these animals, and farmers will often feed them to death with no concern for their health or living conditions.
Demand that the Indonesian government acknowledge this catastrophe and vow to end the cruel production of civet coffee!
