    About This Project

    Indonesia Hornbill Conservation Society

    Helmeted hornbills are a conservation icon of the Asian tropical rainforest. These large birds are of major ecological and cultural significance, but increasingly threatened with extinction. They need healthy tropical forests to survive, but forests are disappearing and poaching for their ivory bills makes thing even more worse! Urgent action is needed, starting with a conservation and threat assessment.
