How A Community-Based Initiative Restored Dwindling Hornbill Population In Western Ghats

Mini Muringatheri writes about the Hornbill nest tree monitoring programme involving the Kadars, an indigenuous community which was started in 2005 in the Vazhachal forest division. It was started to address the declining hornbill population and restore their vanishing nesting habitat.
