Priorities for Future Research

More information is needed regarding the diet and the breeding behavior of Toco Toucans in the wild. A better understanding of the territory size of Toco Toucans (and other toucans) also is needed. Having a better understanding of population numbers and the effects of human hunting could also prove to be important for the purposes of monitoring the status and potential decline of Toco Toucans.
