Journal 10 : Biomorphic Animal


Leucopsar rothschildi, Bali starling

Bali, Indonesia

The Bali Starling was very popular as a pet. It has bright white feathers and brilliant blue face. It is so beautiful that it catches people’s eyes. However, this charm brought it bad luck unfortunately. People captured Bali Starlings one after another to sell them as pets. Moreover, Bali Starlings can be found only in the island of Bali, so the number was small from the beginning. Because of hunting and cutting down forests, the Bali Starling is in danger of disappearing. A captive-breeding project started to raise the number of Bali Starling, and release it to the wild. However, in 2001, only six Bali Starlings were alive in the wild.

To continue their existence, I gave needles like porcupines to help their survival. As they are very beautiful, many people want them as their pets. However, if their feather is needles, I think the numbers of people who want to get them as pets will be decrease. In addition, I also made their beak longer and sharper to protect them by themselves.
