Parrot Conservation Indonesia Part 2 – Ecotourism

In yesterday’s post, I introduced you to Mehd Halouate and his work with the World Parrot Trust.  Today, I will show you some of the eco-tours he and his wife, Lena are operating throughout Indonesia.  First, have a look at his website and see the tours organized for 2014-2016.

Use your miles to get to Indonesia and save your money for the tour and to spend locally!

Tours for 2014
Tours for 2015
Tours for 2016

If you enjoyed my series on West Papua from March 2013 but were afraid to go on your own, the good news is that Mehd & Lena are offering all the same destinations with more time at each one on this tour.

Purple-naped Lory (Lorius domicella)

The beautiful Purple-naped Lory (Lorius domicella) is forest-dwelling endemic to the islands of Seram, Ambon, and perhaps also Haruku and Saparua, South Maluku, Indonesia. It is considered endangered, the main threat being from trapping for the cage-bird trade.
