Cockatoo are among the most popular birds in Indonesian society. Starting from the crest, feathers, the attitude of the parrot, and especially because his intelligence imitates the human voice makes many people want to keep it. These animals can also be trained to perform in animal performances. The combination of its beautiful feathers and intelligence makes this bird a favorite to keep. Unfortunately, this is increasingly threatened by the population.
In Indonesia, it is a protected animal. Currently, parrots and some other types of birds have been designated as protected wildlife. It is stated in the Regulation of the Minister of Environment and Forestry (LHK) Number P.106/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/12/ 2018 of 2018 concerning the Second Amendment to the Regulation of the Minister of Environment and Forestry (LHK) Number P.20/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/6/2018 concerning Protected Plant and Animal Species.
Garuda Indonesia is again trusted to participate in the conservation process of protected endangered animals. In cooperation with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) through the Directorate General of Ecosystem Natural Resources Conservation (KSDAE), Garuda Indonesia helped transport 23 yellow-crested cockatoos from Kupang to Ambon on Tuesday (15/06).
