What we do

The APNR Southern Ground-Hornbill Project, based in the Greater Kruger National Park, works towards slowing and reversing the decline of the species while carrying out fundamental research on these iconic birds. For the past 20 years, researchers from the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology have been investigating Southern Ground-Hornbills’ habitat-use, reproductive success, and behaviour. Our efforts focus on installing and monitoring artificial nests, and studying the birds’ reproduction and behaviour.

Any sightings of Southern Ground-Hornbills in the Greater Kruger area of South Africa goes towards helping us with our research and regional conservation efforts.
