The Vanishing Bird

The Vanishing Bird is a documentary about helmeted hornbill poaching in Indonesia. Pressure on the last remaining helmeted hornbill population is huge.

On the Indonesian side of Borneo, poachers are pushed by foreign money to spend long days in the forest and use special techniques to hunt the bird.

Wildlife photographer Cede Prudente fights his own war against poaching. He aims at the Helmeted hornbill beauty to spread the importance of the bird alive.
