Hunting the Helmeted Hornbill

Poster 9e2ddefbd7-poster

The helmeted hornbills of Southeast Asia's rainforests are frequently poached for their casques, which, like elephant ivory, are carved into luxury objects. But these birds are treasures of avian biology--dedicated mates which risk their lives to raise their young. Conservationist Yoki Hadiprakarsa and photographer Tim Laman are on a mission to tell the story of this ancient bird before it's too late.

Accessible for free April 18-25.
