Living in Harmony with Migratory Birds

Over the last 2 years, Biodiversity Society found that migratory birds, especially Oriental Honey Buzzard and Japanese Sparrow-hawk use the same place in Mount Slamet Forest for roosting site. Some of them roosted in the village which are really close to human settlements. In order to increase awareness on local people, we would like to promote this information to local villagers, so they can live in harmony with migratory birds and protect the area from poachers who are still frequently present in Indonesia.
