Meet the Rhinoceros Hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros). Native to the rainforests of southeast Asia, the species is named for the conspicuous orange horn, or "casque", that sits atop its bill.

Sylvan Heights Bird Park will feature these remarkable birds in a brand new aviary this year, and we need your help to complete this project!

If you'd like to help us create a home for these hornbills, please consider making a donation using the button below. Please specify 'Rhino Hornbill Aviary" when donating online. Thank you for support!



 UPDATE: Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, the next $2,000 raised in support of this project will be met with a 50% match!  This generous donation will help raise a significant portion of the remaining funds needed.
