Released 5 oriental-pied hornbills
Around 40 years ago, hornbills disappeared from Koh Kood, Thailand. It is said that hunting from migrant workers and some locals was the cause.
The Soneva Foundation is working with the Hornbill Research Foundation to reintroduce hornbills on Koh Kood in Thailand. The Hornbill is an important species for the island as it helps spread the seeds of bigger trees, which improves the biodiversity of the forest.
On May 17, 2022, we opened the enclosure to allow our first oriental pied hornbill pair to enjoy nature in the wild. Since then, further three hornbills have been released.
