Who is



Biodiversity and Natural History Society (BruWILD) was formed in August 2013 and became legally registered as a non-government organization on April 2014. Their formation began when a group of passionate biologists from different fields of interests (such as ecology, botany, marine biology, mammal study, herpetology, ornithology) came together and agreed to dedicate our time and efforts to share our knowledge and interests with the large public members. They are all graduates and over 70% of us are locals. ​ They strive to provide the best educational support to local schools, institutions, nature groups and wildlife enthusiasts. They also work closely with local authorities in biodiversity conservation, wildlife rescue and sustainable development. They often take part in national conferences, trainings and workshops to continuously build our understanding and skills on biodiversity protection.


Wildlife Trafficking

The Forest Farmer in Trouble

Written by:
Rachael Bale
The helmeted hornbill, one of 57 hornbill species in Africa and Asia, is found only in the lowland forests of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, southern Thailand. Hornbills are vital to the survival of Southeast Asia’s forests. As “farmers of the forest,” they disperse seeds by regurgitating or defecating them, helping to replenish trees over several square miles. It’s an especially important task now, given how much primary forest has been cleared by commercial enterprises. Widespread logging also is reducing habitat for Asian hornbill species and threatening their ability to nest.
