S'pore has became a hot laundering spot for wild birds from Solomon Islands being exported as captive-bred pets.
Nothing surprising as over the years our govt has only given lip service to conservation and wild life protection issues. Basically there is more noise than action from them. NGOs group are the ones actively promoting and supporting conservation matters.
Malaysia govt has suspended bird imported from Solomon Islands due to concerns of such illegal activities, but not S'pore.
