Protected Species On Sale at Jalan Merak Jingga Medan (July 19, 2015)
Posted on 11:01 July 28th, 2015

Exotic birds are on sale at Jalan Merak Jingga wildlife market in Medan. During the visit to this location, SCORPION saw several species of exotic birds on sale at shop number 202 such as Moluccan king parrot (Alisterus amboinensis), Nias parrot, and some others.

When Scorpion asked where the Nias parrot came from, the owner said from Mentawai. Nias parrot is listed as protected species, according to Government Law no. 7 year 1999. Wildlife shop owners in Medan always say their parrots are not from Nias but from Mentawai. However, according to the observation of Scorpion, the “Mentawai Parrots” are actually “Nias Parrots.” They just call them “Mentawai parrots” to fool the government officers who are usually don’t care too much about it.
