The Indonesian Parrot Project aims to help to conserve Indonesian cockatoos which are endangered in the wild, through actions both in the field as well as those "at home" by reducing the trapping, smuggling, and sale of wild cockatoos through collaborations with both governmental and non-governmental organizations as well as rehabilitating cockatoos (and other psittacines) confiscated by authorities from smugglers. The IPP also conducts scientific research, ecological studies, and other in field conservation works all in service of protecting cockatoos and throughout the region.
