Hornbills (bucerotidae) are important as indicators of forest condition and human disturbance because they need large homerange and tree hole for nesting. Hornbills were protected by Indonesian regulation to conserve their existence in the forest. Population study and food species are useful information to manage their habitat in the ECC (Pusat Latihan Gajah). The study was conducted in December 2009 to January 2010 with survey method. The results showed there were seven species of Bucerotidae found in the ECC Seblat: Helmeted Hornbill (Rhinoplax vigil), Wreathed Hornbill (Aceros undulatus), Wrinkled Hornbill (Aceros corrugatus), Bushy-crested Hornbill (Anorrhinus galeritus), White-crowned Hornbill (Berenicornis comatus), Asian Black Hornbill (Anthracoceros malayanus), and Rhinoceros Hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros). The White-crowned Hornbill has the highest density (6.413 ind/km2 ), and Wrinkled Hornbill and Helmeted Hornbill has the lowest density (1.466 ind/km2). Fruit plants are often eaten by hornbills in PLG Seblat forest are a member of family Moraceae (Ficus spp), Myristicaceae (Myristica sp), and Myrtaceae (Eugenia polyantha).
