印尼流行飼養鳴鳥,鳴鳥比賽更非常盛大。政府計劃發出圈養繁殖雀鳥牌照,鼓勵在野外捕捉雀鳥繁殖作買賣來推動經濟,並要求繁殖者野放部分雀鳥來保持野外的數量。雀鳥愛好者都知道野生鳴鳥的聲音更響亮動聽,有保育團體認為發出牌照會弄巧成拙,而且圈養繁殖的速度不能跟得上市場需求,所以只會導致更多人合法捕捉野生雀鳥。

bird keeping and songbirds singing contests are very popular in indonesia. the government is planning to give out breeding licenses to encourage breeders to catch wild birds for captive breeding, and require them to release some of their stock back to the wild to replenish the wild population. however, bird keepers would prefer wild-caught birds as their voices are louder and better; some conservationists thinks this policy would create more harm than good; it would allow more people to catch wild birds and more birds would be threatened.
