Even though owl popularity in Indonesia is correlated with the “Harry Potter” craze, this does not prove that “the boy who lived” directly caused this trend. Non-wizarding factors may have influenced owl sales as well. For example, Nijman and Nekaris are quick to point out that the owl trade increased alongside the rise of pet owl interest communities, especially ones online.
I shot this video of an owl for sale in a pet store in Okinawa, Japan. It had the price reduced to about $3500. This was taken in the fall of 2012.

Study co-author Vincent Nijman, a wildlife-trade researcher at Oxford Brookes University, UK, says he is pretty sure there is a link between the rising owl sales and the popularity of the Harry Potter books and films, in which the titular character keeps a pet owl named Hedwig. The first novel was translated into Indonesian in 2000, and the first film adaptation was released in 2001.Nijman adds that there are online forums where fans clamouring for pet owls share tips on where to obtain the birds. The increase in Internet access in Indonesia — one-fifth of the population is now online compared with just 2% in 2001 — made it easier for people to source the birds and is also likely to have contributed to the rise in sales, he says.
