Hornbill Capital of the World-Malaysia's New Eco-Tourism Destination.

The Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) in collaboration with Tourism Malaysia is promoting the Belum Temengor Forest Complex and the Aman Jaya Forest Reserve as Malaysia’s new eco-tourism destinations. Mohamed Shah Redza Hussein, the Executive Director for Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), has even named the site as the Hornbill Capital of the World since it is home to ten totally protected species of hornbills.

MNS and Tourism Malaysia is organising the International Hornbill Expedition (IHE) 2013 in Belum Rainforest Reserve, Gerik, Perak, happening from 20 to 22 September 2013, to coincide with the migration period of the globally threatened Plain-pouched Hornbills found at the site. International participants, local birdwatchers and nature guides are expected to take part in the IHE 2013 which will have a birdathon for national and international delegates and a Hornbill Education Camp for young adults.
