    Product Description

    Conservation Status: Near Threatened

    Geographic Range: Endemic to Mindanao and its two small satellites Camiguin Sur and Dinagat

    Not much is known about this bird, but with constant decline in numbers, they need added protection. They are constantly threatened by habitat conversion, hunting, and trapping for the illegal wildlife trade. Talarak Foundation received our founders in 2008, when they were surrendered to us by the DENR. We are regularly breeding these beautiful birds, with an average of six progenies annually. Our hope is to return them back to their natural habitat in Mindanao.
