The Bali Mynah (Leucospar rothschildi) is one of the most endangered bird species on Earth. In wild it counts merely a hundred specimen. The Asia House of the Nyíregyháza Zoo has seen the birth of a healthy Bali Mynah chick.

 
The bird became almost extinct in the wild after becoming popular on the caged bird market. In 2005 the West Bali National Park (one of the two remaining natural habitats of the bird) was home to less than 10 Bali Mynahs. The species, however is well protected and systematically bred in European and other bird parks, zoos, thanks to the cooperation of the Indonesian Forestry Ministry, the Bali Mynah Conservation Society and the European Endangered Species Programme.
 
The Zoo of Nyíregyháza received a pair of Bali Mynahs in this program and with the hatching of the chick, Nyíregyháza might be able to contribute to the conservation of this rare species.
