Brahminy Kite/Raptor Rescue and Rehabliltation Program
Re-introduction and habitat restoration are strategic measures to ensure the long-term survival of the Brahminy Kite population and promote conservation awareness. The release program for the Brahminy Kite in Indonesia is an important model that provides a framework that can be replicated to develop other re-introduction efforts of the endangered species of Indonesia.
Driving public awareness is a key part of the program, and to this end work includes public readings, school visits, bird watching activities and engaging locals to be involved in the program to conserve the wildlife.
The program closely follows the IUCN guidelines of species re-introduction, ensuring a high quality program that stands up internationally.
Importantly, the local community is engaged in the program with local people employed in a variety of roles to maintain the long-term conservation and management of the Brahminy Kite. Public awareness and local involvement is carried out to enhance the long-term survival of the species in Thousand Islands National Park.
