This gallery of pictures gives a good indication of the Bali Starling natural habitat and the breeding / release centre in Bali Barat National Park.

Bali Starling nest box in situIt cannot be emphasised more that the place is desperately under-funded and any help would be welcome to improve conditions there. The guards and birdkeepers survive in this remote location on very low income and the facilities are very, very primitive. Funds are limited restricting fuel for the generator and even independent boat transport. The staff, therefore, has electric light only for essential tasks such as cooking at night and without their own boat transport they cannot even get home regularly to see their families.
Even under these difficult conditions, the staff remains dedicated to their task but often under hardship.

If you are able to help in any way please contact the Bali Starling Foundation at Bali Bird Park mentioning your interest. Donations may be linked for a specific purpose.
