The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project, in collaboration with Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency, are building a specialised hand-rearing centre, named 'The Baobab'. This facility, once built, will house the redundant, second-hatched chicks, which are harvested from wild nests every breeding season, where they would otherwise die.

Rearing all of the chicks under one roof will result in consistent, well-socialised, wild ground-hornbills which will have the best chance of survival once reintroduced into areas where the species historically occurred but have become locally extinct.

Any funding contribution will go a long way to help us in the next necessary step to reverse the decline of this iconic species. Can you help?
