Why are they lovebirds?
This Valentines day we are highlighting one of our most loving species the Walden’s Hornbill.
This is because they are a rarity among species in the world as they mate for life.
These love birds build a home together in the cavity of trees where the mother lays her eggs and
raises the chicks, closing the cavity to only allow the male to deliver food for their family while
providing protection from predators. This creates a bond for life in which the two birds will forever breed together and return to their same nest to raise their children.
The mother and hatchlings can stay in the tree for up to 105 days until the chicks are ready to fly,
the mother never leaving their side. However, this means if the male is poached or hunted, the
whole family will die. As well as this the deforestation of the Hornbills homes can ruin and end the lives of these birds in love.
Our work helps protect these species along with their homes, offering rehabilitation for the ones
who are not so lucky. So, why not support such a beautiful species in this loving time of year.

Wildlife is Awesome!
Rainforests may be far away – but nonetheless they are of elementary importance for the entire world. It is not without reason that we call them our planet’s “green lung”. In addition, they are the home to innumerable animal species, many of which are rare – some even threatened with extinction – others which have not even been discovered yet. Exactly for this reason, it is essential to preserve such unique ecosystems rich in species for future generations.
The rainforest on the Philippine island Panay is particularly close to our hearts, because it is characterized by its very old age (lots of old big trees), its exceptional diversity of species and its nativeness. However, poaching and illegal clearings/deforestations threaten its existence. For this reason, PhilinCon helps to save the rainforest and its fauna in a number of ways for many years now. This of course involves ongoing expenses, including the basic costs for operating the rescue station, animal feed, medication, as well as personnel costs. To cover these costs, it particularly requires your help.
