Moh Tom was rescued from a trader by rangers at the Stung Proat Station as a juvenile and was found with his feathers plucked. Thanks to our attentive staff, he is slowly recovering and is growing into a beautiful adult hornbill. Despite his size and strength, Moh Tom is a gentle giant and enjoys being hand-fed while the keepers check his feathers each day.
We hope that his feathers will grow in correctly, so that he may one day be able to fly. Hornbills do better at our Wildlife Release Station in Koh Kong to acclimate for possible release.
You can help us care for Moh Tom, and other hornbills like him, by becoming a monthly sponsor! For as little as $5 a month you can help us make a difference in the lives of these beautiful and intelligent birds! Thank you so much for your support!
Our forest rangers work tirelessly to protect some of the world’s most endangered animals in one of Southeast Asia’s last great rainforests.
