Irma Hermawati , ProFauna advocate said , " trading in protected species is clearly a criminal act is the responsibility of us all to help stop it . Efforts to save endangered wildlife can not only be done by a single agency , but required the synergistic cooperation with various parties including private parties such as KASKUS "
