On May 7, FLIGHT Director of Communication, Namira Annisa, met with the Head of Public Relations, Agricultural Quarantine Agency, Endah Kartikawati. Namirapraised the strong relations between FLIGHT and Lampung Quarantine. She expressed our hope that the collaboration between these two organisations would expand to cover other regions vulnerable to bird smuggling.

Namira presented a certificate of appreciation to the Agricultural Quarantine Agency, for the achievements of Lampung Quarantine authority. The latter has thwarted the smuggling of thousands of birds from Sumatra to Java.

Endah recognises the need for wider cooperation between FLIGHT and Quarantine authority. This is a positive move forward in our work to protect and conserve Indonesia’s wonderful bird species.
