Conservation

There are probably only around 50 mature Rothschild’s mynah birds left in the wild! Although protected these birds are still threatened by hunting for the captive bird trade. A successful captive breeding programme is helping to increase numbers. Our Rothschild’s mynahs are part of a European Breeding Programme coordinated by Cologne Zoo, Germany.
