Hornbill Homes on Koh Yao Noi

At Cape Kudu Hotel on the charming little island of Koh Yao Noi, they have instigated a programme of installing homes for the fascinating hornbills in order to expand their habitat and thereby strengthen the population and increase their numbers in the region.

Hotel’s website:


The Hornbill is a spectacular bird whose bright yellow bill is almost as big as the black feathered body.  They have been brightening the forests and skies of Koh Yao Noi for thousands of years.  Now, with the approach of the modern world on this lovely little island, the Hornbills are facing threats of destruction of their habitat and intrusion from human activity.  At Cape Kudu Hotel we are aware of our luck in sharing the island with these fascinating birds; we even named our restaurant after them.  We are also aware of our responsibility in preserving the natural world that surrounds us and we encourage our guests to observe without disturbing them.  We have introduced a programme of installing specially designed nesting boxes at selected points around the forest to encourage the population to increase and strengthen and we are delighted to report that the birds are already moving in.  The Hornbill are happy to share this island with us but we are duty bound to respect their home.
