Concerns over possible bird flu contagion is apparently having a negative impact on Bali's main Satria Bird Market with vendors reporting a drop of 75% in foreign visitors.

According to the Indonesian-language BisnisBali, the manager of the bird market in downtown Denpasar, Tjokorda Ngurah Alit Agung, said that foreign tourist visits to the market are down by 75%, a development he blames on the negative news surrounding bird flu.

While foreign tourist are keeping their distance from the formerly popular stop on a Denpasar city tour, domestic visitors seem less concerned - with the number of local bird hobbyists attending the Satria Market unaffected.

Satria Market Free of Avian Flu

Tests conducted by the Livestock Services of Denpasar and Bali have both confirmed the Satria Bird Market to be free of bird flu. In order to ensure that Bali's bird market remains disease free, kiosk owners are regularly disinfecting all birds cages. Udayana University in Bali has donated 3 spray cleaners to the market and provided training to help upgrade bio-security measures.
