Art for hornbills

Today is ‘Love Hornbill’ Day – a date first chosen by Dr. Pilai Poonswad of the Hornbill Research Foundation, Thailand – to celebrate hornbills. 

Rohan Chakravarty did a cartoon series for the Critically Endangered Helmeted Hornbill. 

Thanks to the support from an IUCN SSC grant to the HSG.The objective was to ensure that people value of the species in the wild, its crazy unique features, and the pivotal role it plays in seed dispersal in forests. LOVE Hornbills and let them live and thrive in the wild.
