Birds are animals whose life is closest to humans. These animals live on beaches, mountains, forests, and residential areas. Its presence is also easy to see.
For nature, the presence of birds is a blessing. Birds function as seed dispersers, plant pollinators, to natural indicators of the environment. For example, hornbills are not only known as forest farmers because of their function as seed dispersers, their existence is also a sign of good forest conditions, because these birds only live in large trees.
Meanwhile, for humans, birds are an inspiration in various things, ranging from art, science and technology. The presence of endangered birds can also determine priority areas for nature conservation. These winged creatures live in all habitats, are sensitive to the environment and data on taxonomy and distribution are fairly complete.
The Indonesian Wild Bird Conservation Association or better known as the Indonesian Bird is present as the leading conservation organization in Indonesia that seeks to conserve wild birds in Indonesia and their habitat. Indonesia is one of the richest countries for bird species with 1,769 species (Burung Indonesia, 2017), and the country with the most endemic bird species with 512 species.
The very large number will certainly be a challenge to conserve each species of bird in Indonesia. Therefore, Burung Indonesia garnered support from the community and parties to jointly preserve the nature of the archipelago.
