Hornbill Conservation Project in Belum – Temengor Forest Complex (BTFC)

Malaysian Nature Society (MNS)

RM 1.22 Million

2 Years (2012 – 2014) 

Who understands hornbills better than the people who live in the same environment as the birds?

The Orang Asli community in Kampung Chuweh in Gerik, Perak, are among the first indigenous community living in the Belum-Temengor that the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) approached to aid with field work that can shed light on these beautiful birds and how they survive in the wild. 

During the field activities that were conducted from December 2012 to February 2013, seven feeding sites for the rhinoceros hornbills, one feeding site for the great hornbills and three feeding sites for the oriental pied hornbills were discovered. 

MNS also held the first Hornbill Conservation Education Camp from February 22 to 24, 2013 in Gerik and the Temengor forest. A total of 15 school nature club coordinators and 10 co-curriculum officers from the Education Departments of various states participated in this camp.
