Protect Bali Starling, Garuda-BSMP Inaugurates ‘Exhibit’

Protect Bali Starling Garuda-BSMP Inaugurates ExhibitBali Starling is the endangered bird species becoming the proud of Balinese community that must be protected. Such an effort is made by PT Garuda Indonesia (Persero Tbk.) in collaboration with the Bali Safari & Marine Park (BSMP) by establishing a large bird exhibit that will become a new habitat for the Bali Starling. The exhibit located at Lobby Barong can be viewed by all visitors.

Director of Operations of Garuda Indonesia, Novianto Herupratomo, said the cooperation was an effort to keep the population of rare bird species only owned by the people of Bali. On that account, the existence of Bali Starling was very important and the international community even considered it an endangered species that should be kept from extinction.

According to him, the partnership program was a form of corporate concern for the preservation of wildlife and the environment. Aside from inviting the entire community, it was also intended to provide education about conservation of the rare bird species. “Other than intended for the preservation of forests and mangrove planting, the CSR of Garuda also does beach clean program in Bali,” he said.

It was a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program of Garuda Bali Mynah signed with the BSMP in January 2012. “It was intended to return the bird into its habitat so that the existence will be constantly maintained because it is now listed as one of the endangered species in the natural environment. This new exhibit is designed especially in appropriate with their natural habitat,” he said.

He explained the assistance of Garuda was given in the form of funds for the exhibit establishment and provision of education to community. “We provide education to passengers and employees so that they are more aware of the conservation issues regarding the Bali Starling. It is also carried out in the aircraft through video,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Board of Directors of the Taman Safari Indonesia, Tony Sumampao, said the obstacle in implementing conservation was that the price of Bali Starling was still too expensive. “A pair of Bali Starling costs IDR 15 million so that it makes people want to capture because the price remains high. Actually, if the population has increased the value will go down,” he said.

According to him, the number of Bali Starling was dominantly in the hands of society, namely about 1,700 heads, but in the native habitat only reaches 30 heads. “The Safari Park has 4 pairs or eight heads. Our plan is to bring in 150 heads in this August. They are averagely brought in from the breeding site such as from Yokohama, Japan,” he added. (BTN/015)
