Nias Hill Myna (Gracula robusta) is nowadays recognized as one of the five distinct species of the genus Gracula (Linnaeus, 1758) (Feare and Craig 1998; del Hoyo 2009), but still often regarded as a subspecies of Common Hill Myna (Gracula religiosa). Nias Hill Myna is particularly distinctive large bird with considerably more extensive white wing patches extending to the secondaries. This species is known to be restricted to the hill forest of Nias and Banyak Island of western Sumatra (Feare and Craig 1998). Nias Hill Myna (Beo Nias) is famous for its qualities as a talking bird and besides the forest clearance, the trapping for the cagebirdtrade had a serious impact on the population (del Hoyo 2009). Nias Hill Myna have not been observed in the wild for more than 20 years (Dymond 1994). During a week lasting survey (September 2013) ISCP researchers found at least three individuals of Nias Hill Myna held in captivity. Because there are still no records from the wild, further conservation action  has been discussed. To establish appropriate rehabilitation and quarantine center for confiscated G. robusta and education of local communities appear to be a major step how to prevent this species from extinctiobeoniasn
