Bali's governor Made Mangku Pastika traveled some 90 kilometers from his office in Denpasar to the West Bali National Park on Thursday, May 2, 2011, where he released two endangered Bali Starlings (leocopsar rothschildi).

The beautiful Bali Starlings are in the process of making a slow comeback from the brink of extinction as the result of an international captive breeding and release program in Bali.

Quoted in the national news service Antara, I Gede Nyoman Wiranatha, the head of the Bali Forestry Service, said on the release of the two birds by the governor,  "in addition to these two birds, four more pairs are targeted for release in the West Bali National Park as part of the efforts to increase the population of this endangered bird which serves as a mascot of Balinese wildlife."

Wirantha revealed that the birds currently being released back into nature are part of a captive breeding program underway at the Bali Safari and Marine Park in Gianyar. Before being released into nature, the rare birds are equipped with microchip transmitters on their legs in the hopes of tracking the starlings' movements.

The wildlife official estimates the population of Bali Starlings living in the wilds of the West Bali National Park at 37 birds with another 147 captive breeding birds also maintained at the park.
