OTHER INDONESIAN INDIGENOUS BIRDS
Bali Black-winged Starling
Nominated as the number 1 endangered songbird in Indonesia, with very few bred in zoos around the world, Begawan Foundation will work together Bali Bird Park who are currently holding just a few of this species. Red listed as Critically Endangered since 2010, numbers in the wild have decreased significantly and a program of captive breeding needs to be developed.
Four Javan Peacocks, two male and two females, were cared for by Begawan Foundation at Begawan Giri Estate, on Nusa Penida and at Sibang. The decision was made in 2012 to send them to East Java, where they were successfully released into the National Park at Baluran.
