Hornbill Research Foundation

The Hornbill Research Foundation was set up following a project initiating research into the ecology of hornbills by the Faculty of Science, Mahidol University in 1980.

The study was begun in Khao Yai National Park and later expended to include forests in western and sounthern regions. Apart from the biology and ecology of hornbills, research was also made into their range and status throughout the country. As a result, an increasing number of research workers were needed to cope with the expansion of project and the maintenance of uninterrupted record-keeping.

This led to the creation of a foundation which H.R.H. Princess Mahachakri Sirinthorn was graciously pleased to name, and "The Hornbill Research Foundation" was set up in July 1993.
