The Sumatran Leafbird occurs in the middle and upper strata of lowland evergreen forest in Sumatra, Indonesia, in secondary forest, plantations and village orchards from 600-1000 m. The population is considered to be declining at a rapid rate due to trapping for the cage bird trade in conjunction with habitat loss throughout the range. For this reason, the species is listed as Endangered.
Sumatran Leafbirds are #endangered in #Indonesia due to massive #deforestation and loss of 90% of their forest habitat for #palmoil over the past 3 decades. Support the survival of this forgotten animal with your supermarket shopping #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
