Helmeted Hornbill (Rhinoplax vigil) sighting records
The Helmeted Hornbill was uplisted in the IUCN Red List from Near Threatened to Critically Endangered in 2015 owing to severe hunting pressure for its casque and habitat loss. Hunting pressure is expected to increase across the species range and urgent conservation action is required.
The Helmeted Hornbill Working Group, helmed by Bee Choo Strange of the Hornbill Research Foundation is on an urgent mission to collate records of the species within its geographical range in preparation for a report to delegates of the Helmeted Hornbill Conservation Strategy and Action Plan workshop in May 2017. The workshop will include researchers, NGO representatives and enforcement officers from the range countries and aims to develop a conservation action plan by year end.
Phase 1 (Mar-May 2017) involved recruiting past and present records from the literature, databases, museums and most importantly, recent and near-recent records from birdwatchers. This form is only convenient for single or few submissions by individuals on current birdwatching trips. If you have a collated number of record, it may be more convenient to submit them using an Excel template here:
