Rihanna posted a selfie of her holding a slow loris, a post that led to arrests for poaching the endangered species in Thailand.

In 2011, FOX 17 aired a Web Moment that addressed mistreatment of these animals in online videos, with an interview with Bert Vescolani, who was the director of John Ball Zoo at the time.
