International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List status: Critically endangered. Due to habitat destruction of the forest, illegal bird trade, poaching and nest site competition with black-wing starlings, the Bali mynah is nearly extinct. The Bali Bird National Park in Indonesia is one place where these beautiful birds are protected. In fact, armed guards patrol this bird sanctuary. Captive breeding programs and the Species Survival Plan at the Seneca Park Zoo are dedicated to giving the Bali mynah a chance to survive.
Bali mynahs live in low forested areas and scrub areas on the northern coast of Bali, an island in Indonesia.
Bali mynahs feed on fruit and small insects.
