Last night, FLIGHT Assisted Bakaheuni Quarantine in confiscating illegally transported birds. 300 live birds mainly white eye and sunbirds. These birds have been stolen from their homes in the wild. The birds are set for release today. Cramped and kept in small boxes with very little air, food or water. Then stuffed into a Bus baggage area, hot, humid near the engine. This is how the 300 birds were transported for illegal sale in markets. We need your Help to end this. Spread the word, tell people to stop buying birds from markets in Indonesia, if you love birds support bird watching eco-tourism.
On August 28, 2018 we have reported the illegal trade in protected animals in Sukahaji Market, Bandung, West Java, to the authorities. The photographic evidence which we have sent constitute compelling reasons for the government to close Indonesia’s bird markets. In addition to wild birds in the Indonesia’s cruel bird markets, you can also find macaques chained and kept in small cages. Please join us in our calls for an end to the illegal bird trade throughout Indonesia: https://www.change.org/p/siti-nurbaya-bakar-close-indonesia-s-cruel-bird-markets If you would then like to help support us, please make a donation of whatever you can afford at http://flightprotectingbirds.org/donate/
Our findings strongly show that these places not only became hubs for illegal trade in bird, but also places where animal cruelty routinely occurs. These photos speak more than words ever can.
