An Expedition to the World's Hornbill Capital

It's that time of the year again, when plain pouched hornbills migrate from their breeding grounds in Thailand to Malaysia, and if you're lucky enough, you'll get to see 10 species of hornbills in areas like Royal Belum State Park in Perak, where the other nine species of hornbills can be found. Andrew Sebastian, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of the Ecotourism & Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY) joins us once again for a quick refresher on hornbills in Malaysia, and to share more on the Royal Belum International Hornbill Expedition 2021.
