Below article is a rendering of Sudaryanto’s dissertation ‘Conservation of the Bali Starling (Leucopsar rothschildi, Stresemann, 1912) in Nusa Penida’ to the Faculty of Biology at Gajah Mada University, Jogjakarta, Indonesia,1 December 2016.
The article below is a bibliography of the Bali Starling (1912-1994) compiled by Bas van Balen (1995), a publication by PHPA/BirdLife International-Indonesia Programme.
The Oriental Birding Club's magazine Forktail (no.31, 2015) reports that the Bali starling has virtually disappeared from Nusa Penida, apparently as a result of poaching. This article (p.5) is part of a larger article (P1-12) entitled 'Trade-driven extinctions and near-extinctions of avian taxa in Sundaic Indonesia', written by J.A.Eaton, C.R.Sheperd, F.E.Rheindt, J.B.C.Harris, (B) van Balen, D.S.Wilcove & N.J.Collar.
Below article on the conservation status of the Bali Starling on Nusa Penida was written by C. Kabryn Mattison, and published in ‘The Flyer’, IAATE International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators, Fall 2016. She kindly gave permission for this article to be published here.
