Lovebirds

Valentine’s Day

Gifts from our most loving species - the Walden’s Hornbill.

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.

Patron for wild nesting Dulungans (Nestguarding)

Nestholes in trees are the homes of many wild birds like the Dulungan. The female Dulungan takes care and protects the chicks, while the father feeds his family. Protecting the nests during the breeding season is therefore important to keep the population numbers save. Be a Patron for the breeding birds. Support the locals and help with environmental education, protect the important wildlife and its homes.

Wouldn’t be this a nice pregnany gift or a family present?

Patron wild hornbill brood

Patron of the Dulungan Brood

Become patron of a wild Walden’s Hornbill breeding pair. It’s symbolic for the around 700 wild Hornbill breeding pairs we monitor and see them trough in the central panay mountain range. Their behaviour is amazing!  Before incubation, they begin to close the entrance of the nest cavity with natural materials such as mud and fruit pulp. After the female has entered the cavity to lay her eggs, the entrance is closed further. Only a hole small enough for the male to feed the female and her offspring remains. This behavior helps to protect the nest from rival hornbills and predators. Once the chicks have grown, the barrier in front of the nesting site is destroyed. Read more about Hornbills here, and please donate or buy a wonderful present (still a donation, but with a gift).

What am I supporting?

Since 2000, our nestwardens protect the hornbill breeding pairs, during and after the breeding season once a year. After the birds leave their nest, the wardens earn money for each successesful brood. By supporting, you can help so the nestwardens do not only protect, but learn to value wildlife and pass on this respect for nature to their children.

Where will my money go to?

Your donation for our Nestwarden program is greatly appreciated and will be used to cover our project costs. Every month we spend around 2.000€ / 2.500 $ / 120.000 PhPeso on our core projects, see project overview. We are happy to have cooperations, paying a part of our costs. If you want to know more, see about – history – our budgetary requirements. We are known for keeping our administrative costs as low as humanly possible. We also have a lot of coworkers in the Philippines and abroad (Germany), doing unpaid volunteer work.

Can I trust you?

In case you are living in Germany, we will give you a donation receipt. We undergo the regular validation by the German tax authority and have the recognized non-profit status.

Sure a good thing

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.
