The Begawan Foundation celebrated its 23rd anniversary by inaugurating a captive breeding center for the endangered Bali Starlings (Rothschild’s Mynah, Bali Mynah) in Banjar Saren, Abiansemal in Bali.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the founder of the Begawan Foundation, Bradley T. Gardner told the press that the new breeding center was welcoming 20 Bali Starlings bred at the Koelner Zoo in Germany and 3 Bali Starlings from the Jurong Bird Park in Singapore.

“In fact, these birds have already been in Bali for several months, having completed a period of quarantine at the Bali Bird Park in Gianyar Now we are formally celebrating their arrival in conjunction with the completion of the captive population cages at the Green School,’ explained Gardner.

“These birds that were made the official bird and mascot for the province of Bali in 1970 are now registered as an endangered species under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES),” said Gardner who has been involved in efforts to preserve the Bali Starling species since 1999.

Gardner said the breeding center continues to work for the survival of the Bali Starling species. In the future birds raised at the center will be released back into nature, continuing a program that has already released to date 65 Bali Starlings on Nusa Penida island.

While saluting the efforts to save the Bali Starling, the head of the Forestry Service for Bali, I Gede Nyoman Wiranatha, said the high price of nearly Rp. 15 million (US$1,600) paid to poachers by bird collectors has served to threaten any wild populations.
