This is an augumentation of our a decade long Kadar ethnic community based hornbill and hornbill nest tree monitoring programme in the Anamalai (vazhachal) part of southern western ghats kerala. You can be a part of this through adding your observations and can contribute to longterm monitoring of dynamics of our precious rainforest habitat, hornbills and their nesting trees.
