IFAW-COP animal rescue teams respond to double volcano threat in Indonesia

IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare is working near Mt. Kelud in the Island of Java, and Mt. Sinabung in Sumatra, Indonesia to help companion animals, farm animals and wildlife displaced after volcanic eruptions forced the evacuation of nearby residents.

Mt. Kelud, a 5,679-feet-high volcano, erupted on February 13 forcing the immediate evacuation of nearby villages. According to news reports, up to 36 villages situated six miles from the crater are in danger and 200,000 people are being asked to leave.
