The Indonesian Parrot Project works to save parrots and cockatoos from extinction in Indonesia. The film shows the history and current work of IPP, the challenges of parrot conservation in Indonesia, and the importance of protecting parrots as flagship species. The viewer will gain insight into all aspects of parrot conservation, and will see that success can be achieved only by well-organized cooperation among researchers, conservationists, local communities and authorities.
