Will You Hear Us

In Indonesia, owning a bird is an ancestral tradition. It is a sign of wealth and social success. The more colourful the plumage and the more melodious the song, the more value a bird has on the market. As a result, millions of Indonesians own caged birds. The scale of the bird trade has long worried conservationists and ornithologists. They say the hobby has become unsustainable because of the enormous pressure on the wild bird populations in Indonesia.
