Conservation and life in Borneo

Suspected Wildlife Crime: an Email to the Sabah Wildlife Department

Dear Sir/Madam,
I saw a suspicious vehicle recently whilst driving into Sandakan. It had a number of small cages on the back, containing 6 blue-crowned hanging parrots. As I understand from your information, these are protected and ownership requires a license. I have attached photographs showing the birds as well as the registration of the vehicle and identity of the driver. If appropriate, I would appreciate it if you could find time to check whether or not the registered owner of the vehicle is licensed to own these birds.
Yours sincerely,
Paul Clenton
It will be interesting to see what, if anything, happens. The ball’s in their court now.
