Indonesian Endangered Animal : Salmon-crested cockatoo

Animal

Monarch is a parrot that is endemic to Indonesia and is designated as an endangered species. This parrot lives in flocks in tropical forests. Since the mackerel is also a bird that is very friendly to people, there are a certain number of people who keep them. However, as it is an endangered species, it will be a little difficult to obtain. Although international trade in the mackerel is prohibited, poaching is a problem.

Ecology

Macaws are omnivorous, eating fruits, seeds, berries, and insects. The breeding mode is oviparous. During the breeding season, males and females often live in pairs, courting each other in trees. Females can lay 1-3 eggs at a time. The incubation period lasts 28-30 days, with males and females alternately incubating the eggs. Chicks fledge about 14 weeks after hatching. It takes about five years to reach sexual maturity. The lifespan of the mackerel can be as long as 60 years in captivity.

endangered species

Although they are very popular as pets, they are actually designated as an endangered species. Monarch cockatoos can only live in rainforests, but Indonesia is undergoing rapid land development, and the area they can live in is getting smaller and smaller. In addition, the demand for pets is so high that overfishing is a very serious problem. Against this background, this bird was listed in CITES Appendix I in 1989 and international trade was prohibited. Farmers may also exterminate the birds. Because they feed on coconut fruits, they are sometimes considered pests.

Breeding

Although it is possible to keep the mackerel in captivity, it is not easy to obtain because it is designated as an endangered species and listed in the Washington Convention. It is also said to be a long-lived bird because it is a bird that can live for more than 50 years. If you want to take care of them, you must live to take care of them until they die. If you want to breed them, prepare the following tools.

Keep the mackerel in a special cage for large birds.
