Although the incident occurred in Indonesia, Jabatan Perhilitan Semenanjung Malaysia has released a statement explaining that the hornbill is also a protected species in Malaysia and if an individual is convicted, he can be charged with RM100,000 or imprisoned for up to 3 years.

Recently, we have been reading a lot about how the humankind is terribly affecting other creatures and the planet as a whole. Change has to come from our own self and the policies that govern us. The clock is ticking and we need to step it up!
