Les résultats du recensement de l'étourneau de Bali entravés

Septembre 9, 2013 - Extrêmement mauvais temps et l'insuffisance de données a entravé les résultats de notre plus récent recensement de l'étourneau de Bali à notre sanctuaire d'oiseaux sur l'île de Nusa Penida.

“During the three days we spent in July setting up and running bird observation posts heavy rain swept over the island – and this of course affected the numbers of birds that could be seen flying about. Also sadly our volunteer monitoring team this year was new to the job and the data they recorded was incomplete,"Dit Amis de la Fondation des parcs nationaux de (FNPF) PDG et fondateur Dr Bayu Wirayudha.

After our census the previous year our expert estimated there were at least 105 Bali starlings – one of the world’s most endangered species – on Nusa Penida, and the neighboring island of Nusa Lembogan.

"Nous n'avons aucune raison de croire que la population de l'étourneau de Bali a diminué, et anecdotique nous croyons que les oiseaux, which we see every day around our Nusa Penida conservation center, are doing well,” said Dr Wirayudha. “FNFP will hold its next census in December and we will be working hard to ensure data collected is more than adequate to make an accurate population estimate.”

Notresanctuaire, le seul de son genre en Indonésie, provides a haven for endangered birds – Indonesia has the world’s second-highest number of threatened birds. Nous avons créé le sanctuaire, qui couvre trois îles 14 km au sud-est de Bali continentale, pour sauver l'étourneau, l'emblème de la province, de l'extinction.

FNPF a réussi à persuader 41 villages across the three islands to introduce traditional regulations agreeing to protect birds from poachers and wildlife traders. When we started in 2006 there were believed to be less than 10 of these birds surviving in the wild. Every year since the numbers of birds have been increasing and we are looking forward to a similar finding in the end of year census.
