Critically endangered yellow-crested cockatoos discovered stuffed inside plastic bottles – TomoNews

8 May 2015

Indonesian police discovered more than 24 yellow-crested cockatoos stuffed inside empty water bottles at the port of Tanjung Perak customs. These critically endangered birds could be sold for a lot of money if the smugglers were not caught.

Indonesia has an amazing array of wildlife species. Sadly, its biodiverse archipelago is suffering a significant decline of mammals and birds mainly to illegal hunting.

Indonesia’s very own Wildlife Crimes Unit works hard to stop smugglers and educate locals about animal habitat.

These majestic cockatoos live in the lush islands of Sulawesi, however their habitat is also threatened due to illegal logging and pesticides. Almost 50% of the birds die during smuggling.

Yellow-crested cockatoos also seldom breed and are in greater danger as they only lay two eggs in one year.
