West Kalimantan to Become Hornbill Conservation Center

TEMPO.CO, Pontianak-West Kalimantan Province will become Hornbill conservation center and captivity.

“We have allocated funds to prepare for it,” Deputy Chairman, the House’s Commission IV Daniel Johan told Antaranews in Pontianak on Monday, June 27, 2016.

The captivity and conservation area will be located in Paloh Sub-district, Sambas District. “But Paloh is not the only [choice of] location. The alternative is Sintang District,” he said.

The conservation area and captivity is needed as the bird is an endangered species. Hornbill hunting is prevalent for their beak.

“The budget for it has been included in the revised budget to be overseen by the Environmental Affairs and Forestry Minister,” he said.

He expected the conservation area to be completed and unveiled this year.
