The Straw-headed Bulbul is one of Asia’s most charismatic songbirds. Its popularity as a highly-valued songbird in parts of Southeast Asia has driven rampant and unsustainable rates of poaching. Recognising this crisis, the International Union for Conservation for Nature (IUCN) up-listed the species to ‘Critically Endangered’ in 2018. The collapse of Straw-headed Bulbul populations across Southeast Asia also leaves Singapore with the most significant populations of this charismatic species globally. The Nature Society (Singapore) and BirdLife International recognizes that any effort to conserve this species globally will need to start from concerted efforts in Singapore, and in cooperation with concerned stakeholders. This Workshop aims to consult key stakeholders to chart a coordinated conservation strategy that identifies priority actions for its conservation in Singapore.  The program of the workshop will be centered include presentations from experts, moderated discussions and breakout sessions. A finalized programme will be available prior to the workshop.
