LOs determined to protect bird-of-paradise

These local community groups have renewed their commitment to work with WWF to promote the conservation and management of key sites and species of this national bird.

Of the 31 different species found in PNG, about 24 are confirmed to be in Kikori basin, as recorded by WWF, and 6 are in the Kutubu region.

Sadly, these birds face increasing threats due to harmful and unsustainable land use practices such as logging and land clearing for development.
