High Conservation Value Assessment (HCVAs) in Southwest Mindanao

Together with Hineleban Foundation, a terrestrial ecological assessment was conducted to establish ecological baselines and identify High Conservation Value Areas. This will provide Al Sahar guidance in the implementation of strategic management and conservation activities throughout their project sites. The project is expected to further encourage private sector investments which would stimulate economic activity whereby “Peace through Development” could be achieved as stated in the Bangsamoro Sustainability Framework (BSF). The assessment revealed a total of 95 species of birds, ten species of amphibians and reptiles, and 23 species of trees were recorded during the survey. Various threatened and endemic species were encountered, such as the endangered Tarictic Hornbill (Penelopides panini) and Banuyo (Wallaceodendron celebicum), as well as 32 Philippine bird endemics with one species restricted to Mainland Mindanao, and three Philippine endemic herpetofaunal species. As for the IBAT screening report, it identified two critically endangered bird species (i.e. Cacatua haematuropygia and Pithecophaga jefferyi), two endangered bird species (i.e. Gorsachius goisagi and Nisaetus pinskeri), one critically endangered reptile (i.e. Crocodylus mindorensis), and one endangered plant species (i.e. Camptostemon philippinense) being potential critical habitat species in the project sites.

    I have been surfing online more than three
    hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
