Conservation Breeding

CCBC

Cikananga Conservation Breeding Centre (CCBC) is located within Cikananga Wildlife Center and has the goal of breeding endemic Indonesian species that are threatened with extinction. The breeding of the species housed at CCBC is done so with genetic management software so as to preserve their genetic diversity.

The ultimate aim is to release individuals back into available safe habitats in their geographic range, this unfortunately is as a long term goal with the rate of habitat destruction in Indonesia and growing the captive population and creating satellite populations at this time is recognised by CCBC to be just as important.

Currently, CCBC houses and successfully breeds the Black-winged Myna(Acridotheres melanopterus), the Rufous-fronted Laughingthrush (Garrulax rufifrons), the Javan Green Magpie (Cissa thalassina), the Sumatran Laughingthrush (Garrulax bicolor) and the Javan Warty Pig (Sus verrucosus).

With the kind support from many institutions all around the world with funding and advice, CCBC has become a leader in breeding these species; contributing greatly to the known global populations.
