FLIGHT was formed as a direct response to the massive scale of wild bird trade in Indonesia, most of which involves the trapping of wild birds to supply the demand. This is driving many species into decline and even resulting in local extinctions in the wild. We are the only organization that focuses on combating illegal wild bird trade in Indonesia and we work at the frontline.
We are registered at the Ministry of Legal and Human Rights on 6th of February 2018 (Reg #AHU-0001636.AH.01.04.Tahun 2018) as a Not-For-Profit conservation group in Indonesia
We have been working on combatting the trade in illegal birds for four years and the results we have achieved are very good. We have learned much from what we have done over the last four years ago and built strong relationships with government and other stakeholders. We will learn from every investigation conducted, every confiscation or law enforcement action and every release.
Since our establishment in February 2018, we have saved more than 150 thousand songbirds in Sumatra, Bali and Lombok. Entering our fifth year, we plan to expand our commitment to saving other wild bird species throughout Indonesia, including wild bird populations in Sulawesi, Maluku and Papua.
