Unknown risk of extinction
Now confined to mangroves
Introduced in Singapore
We support the work of the Cikananga Conservation Breeding Centre (CCBC) in breeding chicks of the black-winged myna for reintroduction to the wild.
We sponsored the construction of a new facility block in CCBC with naturalistic breeding cages equipped with enhanced security features like CCTV to deter poachers.
Besides the breed-and-release programme, CCBC also partners the community to protect these birds. In Jurong Bird Park, we are actively breeding the black-winged myna. Ultimately, the goal is to bring the bird back to safe habitats in their natural range.
