Southeast Asia is home to over 850 avian species, and keeping birds as pets is desirable for their song, their beauty, cultural beliefs, and a multitude of reasons. Sadly, this high demand and volume for domestic and international bird trade, involving hundreds of species and thousands of individual birds, has resulted in many sought-after species are facing dramatic declines. This presentation will give an overview of the scale of the trade across Southeast Asia and more specifically in Borneo.
