Bird conservation volunteering in Bali, Indonesia
Overview: Bird Conservation Volunteering in Bali, Indonesia
Established in 1999, this Animal Conservation Project held the aim to save a really unique and precious bird from the very real threat of extinction: the Bali Starling. The bird is now one of the most endangered species worldwide. Due to the expansion of touristic area and infrastructure, the Bali Star was almost being extincted within only 40 years. The bird only exists on the islands of Bali and Nusa Penida.
This Ubud based conservation center, brings together nature enthusiasts from different spheres of human endeavour under the umbrella of increasing the awareness of starlings conservation. This foundation aims to educate on the importance of starling birds to the conservation of nature while ensuring the systematic collation of bird information through periodic birding trips and other activities that promote bird conservation.
