I thought of myself as a tree-hugger.🌲 Apparently, I am a tree--according to these two. #cockatoo#conure#cagefree#carefree#parrotparadise 🌴 "Be like a tree... Stay grounded. Connect with your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before you break. Enjoy your natural beauty. Keep growing." (Unknown)

Indonesia's vast jungles are home to many threatened bird species. The country is trying to rein in a rampant wildlife trade.
If found guilty, they face jail sentences of up to five years and fines of 100m Rupiah ($7,400; £5,600). Indonesia is home to a large-scale illegal trade of birds, many of which find themselves sold in giant avian markets. Many poached birds are also smuggled abroad.
Dwi Adhiasto of the Wildlife Conservation Society believes the birds uncovered from Monday's raid were on their way to the Philippines, given links to "a parrot smuggling network there". Native to Indonesia's North Maluku province, white cockatoos are listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The IUCN says there are between 43,000 and 183,000 white cockatoos left in the world - but their numbers are falling due to bird poaching and trapping, and destruction of their natural habitats.
