Conservation of Hornbill Nesting Sites.
The Hornbill Nesting site Conservation project is located the Gloucester area of the West New Britain Province. The project area was identified as poorly known to science in the PNG Conservation Needs Assessment report which was conducted to identify the priority areas for biodiversity coneservation by the Department of Environment & Conservationand other organizations. The rationale is to conserve and preserve the hornbill nesting grounds around the Glouscester area. The Province has been and is one of the prime contributor to the national economy from logging operations since the 1960s. The project aims to conserve the areas that breed the hornbills as a WMA.
