On July 7, FLIGHT helped the Cilegon Quarantine in preventing the smuggling of 60 prinia birds from Sumatra to Java via Merak port.
On the same day, the Lampung Police and Quarantine succeeded in stopping the smuggling of more than 2700 birds; species included white eyes, black-naped orioles, sunbirds, prinia, and Myna. at Bakaheuni Port, Lampung.
Assisted by FLIGHT, all birds that survived were released into their habitat the next day after undergoing a health check.
FLIGHT is committed to assisting authorities to combat crime against birds. To date, FLIGHT has saved more than 10,000 birds from the cruel and illegal bird trade.
