Pinatubo Integrated Nature Enhancement (PINE) for Wildlife Project
Pinatubo Integrated Nature Enhancement (PINE) for Wildlife Project
The remaining forest of Mt. Pinatubo is now denuded due to extreme poverty of the community drives them to pursue activities such as illegal logging, charcoal making and kaingin shifting agriculture. The continuous destruction of the forest, led to decrease in numbers wildlife and native tree species in the stie area. Identified threatened and endangered species in the site area are musang, baboy damo, Dao trees, Kalumpit trees and Rattan grass.

Community agro-forestry farms and planting Dao and Kalumpit will be established to expand and restore the habitat of the baboy lale. Household nurseries will be established to provide supply of Rattan, Dao and Kalumpit seedlings to serve as an alternative source of income for the community.

Biodiversity characteristics/ value:
Musangs and Baboy Lale are prime wildlife species and have been a part of the history and culture of the indigenous people community. The Aeta people living in the Pinatubo mountain, considers these wild creatures as indicators of a healthy biodiversity. At present, very few Musangs and Baboy Lale are sighted in the Pinatubo forest as a result of dwindling food source namely Dao, Kalumpit trees, and Rattan grasses.

This will be done by working with the duly constituted village tribal councils. Local market of the native tree seedlings will be identified so that the community cooperators will continue to propagate the seedlings.
