Artificial nest boxes to encourage the breeding of hornbills in Malaysia
In Malaysia, calaos populations suffer from deforestation making natural nidification impossible. Hutan NGO is constructing artificial nest boxes to help conserve wild hornbill populations. In 2017, one of these nests was successfully used by a pair of rhinoceros hornbills – a world first.
