Sumatran Cochoa Cochoa beccarii
The Sumatran Cochoa is a bird living in the middle and upper storeys of tropical lower montane forest between 1,000 m and 2,200 m in Sumatra, Indonesia. This species qualifies as Vulnerable because they occur at very low densities and thus is suspected to have a small population, they are likely to be undergoing a continuing decline owing to habitat loss at the lower fringes of its altitudinal range due to oil palm plantations.
The Sumatran Cochoa lives in the #rainforests of #Sumatra #Indonesia, is vulnerable and declining rapidly due to #palmoil #deforestation. There is no known conservation in place. Say NO to palm oil and join the #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
