Submit Your Sightings

We are responsible for collating all national sighting records in order to conduct the national monitoring, especially groups outside of protected areas. This is to ensure that we can manage for any change in the population due to disease outbreaks, an increase in human persecution, emergence of novel threats, or any other risks.

Please continue to send us any sightings you have in Kruger National Park, but we also ask for any sightings outside of this – the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and along the Limpopo River.

You can drop us an email with SIGHTING RECORD in the subject line or simply fill out the submission form below. If you took photographs, please send those through to us too as this allows us to age juveniles, identify the sex of adults, and assess the breeding strength of the group. See our Ground Hornbill ID kit for assistance in aging and sexing individuals.
