Lien noticed it was a rare bird with a distinctively large beak she had never seen before. She then captured it and contacted the local Forest Protection Department.

The wreathed hornbill belongs to the IB group, a list of endangered and rare species prioritised for protection following the Vietnamese government's Decree 84/2021/ND-CP.
