Hornbills - Burung Enggang - Burung Kenyalang

There are ten species of hornbills in Malaysia, which are totally protected. Among them are Bushy-crested Hornbill, Rhinoceros Hornbill, Wrinkled Hornbill, Great Hornbill, White-crowned Hornbill and Oriental Pied Hornbill.

Please, stop destroying our forest, the only home for hornbills. Do not kill them, once the male dies, its whole family will be destroyed.

Below are some photos of hornbills which can be found in Malaysia and Zoo Negara Kuala Lumpur.
