It's for the Birds

Bali Hilton Partners with Bali Bird Park to Help Save the Bali Starling.


(7/19/2004)

Bali Hilton Partners with Bali Bird ParkBecause of the generous support of the Bali Hilton International a veterinarian from Bali Bird Park will participate in a ten day training program being conducted at the Perth's Zoological Gardens in Western Australia.

Dr. Maryke Andriani has received an airline ticket sponsored by the Hotel that will bring her to a special course dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in exotic birds. Run by the Murdoch University School of Veterinary Science and the Perth Zoological Garden, the course will prove invaluable in the Bali Bird Park's pioneering efforts to protect the endangered Bali Starling. Monitoring the health of the birds at the Bali Bird Park is critical to the success of breeding programs for endangered species. During her Australian trip, Dr. Andriani will gain vital experience in the use of some of the most modern surgical equipment and techniques and will train alongside some of Australia's leading wildlife veterinarians.

In charge of the health and nutrition of the entire collection of more than 1500 birds from 250 species at the park, Dr. Andriani plays a key role in monitoring the health of the birds at the park.

The Bali Starling

Reduced to less than fifteen birds in the wild, the Bali Bird Park has a successful breeding program for these critically endangered birds and recently another three babies were successfully hatched at the Park.

Mercilessly poached by criminals in the wild who sell the rare birds to private collectors, the Bali Starlings last hope for species survival is through building a sustainable population in captivity for eventual release in large numbers into the wilds.

The Bali Hilton's Endangered Species Program

Bali Hilton International offers for sale a range of souvenirs and gift items themed on endangered animals the proceeds from which are used to support programs working to protect endangered species. The sale of items at the hotel, such as the Bali Starling rendered as stuffed animals, produces funds that are critical making Dr. Andriani's trip to Perth possible.

The Bali Bird Park

Located on a 2-hectare site in Singapadu, Gianyar Regency, Bali Bird Park has one of the finest collections of birds in the world with over 1500 birds from over 250 species. Opened in 1995, Bali Bird Park carries the mission to educate the younger generation to appreciate nature and plays a part in conserving the wildlife of Bali and the world.
