Bali Starling Breeding Program at the lodge:

Working with the Begawan Foundation (Project March 2011 - April 2013)


We were honored to have a pair of Bali Starlings from the

Begawan foundation for breeding, unfortunately after 2 years

they did not have offspring, so we returned the Starlings.


We concluded that our climate was not suitable for the Starling,

although the Starling was often seen in our area 20 years ago,

it more likely nested in dryer climates of Bali. We were glad to have

the opportunity to observe these very active and beautiful birds.

Extinct in the wild

Bali Starlings, once common in Bali, are now one of the World’s rarest birds. The Bali Starling is the only endemic bird of Bali and is now now essentially extinct in the wild. There are several breeding programs initiated in Bali which have recently released starlings on a neighboring island, Nusa Penida,

Only captive breeding programs have saved it from total extinction.


A successful Bali Starling breeding program, is privately funded by the Gardner family, under the auspices of the Begawan Foundation.

"No Catching" Bird Policy

The people of Sarinbuana have declared this area as a “No catching animal zone”, due to its proximity to one of the two remaining rainforests in Bali. An area of 1,800 ha is dedicated to preserve nature. You may see locals with rifles – locals are permitted to defend their crops from squirrels (of which there are many) who make an annoying number of holes in their cacao pods – rendering them useless for sale.

We have observed that the local bird population has dramatically increased over the last 4 years.

The Bali Black Eagle makes it’s presence known by it’s distinctive call and can be seen regularly spiralling down the valley.
