The Wrinkled Hornbill is a magnificent and ancient looking bird that lives in primary evergreen and swamp forests up to 1,000 m. They can live in selectively logged forest if primary forests are adjacent, but they do not occur in secondary forest.
Forest fires have also had a damaging effect (particularly in 1997-1998). This species shows strong avoidance of degraded or secondary forests and is reliant on lowland forest (D. L. Yong and S. Mahood in litt. 2018), which is particularly threatened by land conversion for large-scale plantations of oil palm and rubber, as well as clearance for small-scale agriculture. The species requires large trees in which to nest, so logging of large trees is a particular threat (S. Mahood in litt. 2018).
