Biliran Critical Habitat Underway - DENR
“Initial steps are now being done by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to establish the Critical Habitat project within the province of Biliran,” says DENR Regional Technical Director Danilo Javier of the Protected Areas, Wildlife and Coastal Zone Management Service (PAWCZMS).
According to RTD Javier, the establishment of a Critical Habitat is being pursued by the Department due to the significant presence of the Philippine Tarsier (Tarsius syrichta) in identified areas specifically in the towns of Almeria, Kawayan, Culaba and Naval (ALKACUNA), all in Biliran province. The proposed Critical Habitat, with an area of over 12,000 hectares will showcase the natural habitat of the Philippine Tarsier (locally known as Mago). It will also showcase how proper management of wildlife in their natural habitat will be beneficial to the wildlife itself and the people.
