Extremely Endangered Birds Are Brutally Forced Into Plastic Bottles For Illegal Smuggling
Authorities in Indonesia discovered more than 24 birds stuffed inside empty bottles at the Port of Tanjung Perak customs. These extremely yellow-crested cockatoos could be sold for a lot of money if the authorities did not catch the smugglers.
There is an amazing array of wildlife species in Indonesia. Unfortunately, Indonesia’s biodiverse archipelago is suffering a huge descent of birds and mammals because the illegal hunting.
The Wildlife Crimes Unit in Indonesia works hard to educate locals about cockatoos’ habitat, and also stop smuggling. These majestic birds live in the lush islands of Sulawesi. About the half of the birds pass away during smuggling. And these rare species are in extreme danger as they lay just 2 eggs in the year.
