Since 1978. the Thailand Hornbill Project hasbeen actively conducting research on the biological and ecological aspects of hornbills and has expended its research into the forests of western and southern Thailand. In the southern provinces including Pattani.Narathiwat andYala, the project has received  overwhelming coorporation from localvillagers, who previously earned extra money (to add to their 1,500-3,000 baht monthly income) by selling hornbill chicks stolen from their nests and other wildproducts.

By having villagers to help in looking after of hornbills andcollecting research data, the Project aims to create awareness in hornbill conservation of nature in general among local people. At present, the Projecthas the following hornbill nests under its care and protection for scientificdata collection purposes.

In pursuing these funding is extremely crucial.
