hunted due to their track
Asian songbirds reach crisis point. Interest in a wide selection of songbirds throughout Southeast Asia has triggered a madness of unlawful trapping and trade that is unsustainable supply interest in them as caged birds.
The incessant trapping of songbirds is causing woodlands that have been as soon as full of track to gradually grow quiet. It has driven some types just like the Straw-headed Bulbul to extinction that is local. In nations including Indonesia, Viet Nam and Singapore these are typically bought and entered into performing competitions. Some types of songbirds including the White-rumped Shama fetch an increased price if sourced through the crazy. Our company is working together with conservationists, local governments and campaigners to prevent the unmitigated plunder of those valuable animals.
