Meet Kipling, our larger-than-life free flying Southern Ground Hornbill. Enjoying a stroll with a ground hornbill through the hills of San Diego is an extraordinary chance to learn about the story of the Southern Ground Hornbill and Kipling’s role in their preservation in South Africa. Often persecuted on farms and in towns for destruction of property and killed by incidental poisoning, the conservation of African and Asiatic hornbills is a challenge. You can help understand what makes hornbills so remarkable by spending a day with Kipling and his avian friends. Southern Ground Hornbills are smart, charismatic, and curious, and Kipling makes for a very exotic encounter. Our farm animals work together to create a thriving, vibrant, peaceful community.
