Hunting the Helmeted Hornbill

Poster 9e2ddefbd7-poster

Synopsis:
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.
