GAIA To The Rescue Of Endangered Hornbills

Back in 2015, wildlife researcher Dr Ravinder Kaur and wildlife photographer Sanjitpaal Singh set up the social enterprise Explore GAIA, to conserve the hornbills of Malaysia. Explore GAIA, together with the NGO Hutan, are currently the only groups providing nesting opportunities for endangered hornbills in Malaysia, and they have been searching for natural nesting sites of endangered hornbills, monitoring and protecting active nests and innovating artificial nest boxes. In a love-themed Earth Matters special in the spirit of Valentine's Day, we catch up with this award-winning couple in conservation for progress updates on their work, and we also talk about all things hornbills, in conjunction with Love Hornbills Day, celebrated annually on the 13th of February.
