One of the heaviest living animals capable of flight, the Kori Bustard (Ardeotis kori) has a large but disjointed range in sub-Saharan Africa. It is suspected to be undergoing moderately rapid population declines across much of its range owing to a variety of threats including collisions with power lines, hunting and habitat degradation. Previously Least Concern, it has now been uplisted to Near Threatened. Experts would like to continue raising awareness to stop hunting for bushmeat and traditional medicine, and to encourage the public to report mortality from power lines. All new infrastructure (power lines, wind turbines) should be sited and mitigated appropriately, and dangerous sections of line should be retrofitted with appropriate mitigation.

The White Cockatoo (Cacatua alba) is a popular cage-bird whose wild range is in the northern Maluku Islands of Indonesia. The greatest threat is unsustainable levels of trapping for the cage-bird trade. Catch quotas for the species were exceeded by up to 18 times in some localities, indicating that trappers were removing around 17% of the population each year. Illegal trade continues and is probably grossly underestimated, resulting in this previously Vulnerable species being uplisted to Endangered. Additional threats in some areas come from loss of this bird’s forest habitat, due to exploitation by logging companies and clearance for agriculture and mining
