Bali starling breeding center opened

A breeding center for the endangered Bali starling was officially inaugurated by the conservation organization Begawan Foundation in Sibang, Badung regency.

Located inside the Green School area, the breeding center is now accommodating 73 starlings. Twenty of the birds were collected by Koelner Zoo in Germany from various zoos in Europe, and another three came from Jurong Bird Park in Singapore. Brought to Bali several months ago, the total of 23 birds from Germany and Singapore will be used purely for breeding progeny for a future release program in Bali.
