There is a large wild population of Bali Starlings on the small island of Nusa Penida, 15km south west of Bali. This population was introduced to by the Indonesian NGO / Yayasan called FNPF (Friends of the National Parks Foundation).

FNPF has transformed the whole island of Nusa Penida into a sanctuary for endangered Indonesian birds. This was achieved by winning the support from all 41 villages on the island. Each village has passed a local traditional customary law (awig awig) making it obligatory for all community members to protect birds. In return FNPF runs many projects to benefit the communities, such as education scholarships, free tree and organic vegetable nursery, community library, english language lessons, etc.

FNPF rehabilitates and release endangered bids onto the Nusa Penida Island so that they can live in the wil and rebuild their numbers in safety. The greatest threat to endangered birds in Indonesia is being captured by local people and sold to the lucrative illegal bird market.

FNPF has focussed especially on saving the Bali Starling, one of the world's most endangered birds and Bali's official mascot animal. Despite hundreds of Bali Starlings having been released into West Bali National Park, over the last 20 years, there were less than 10 remaining in the wild in 2005.
Conversely, since 2006 FNPF has release just 74 Bali Starlings onto Nusa Penida island. At least 3 generations of Bali Starlings have bred on Nusa Penida since the first release in 2006, and there were at least 100 living in the wild in 2010.
