100 Has. Biodiversity Conservation in Mt. Isarog Natural Park
100 Has. Biodiversity Conservation in Mt. Isarog Natural Park
The project intends to undertake community-based activities for the protection, conservation and management of 100 hectares forest areas in Mt. Isarog thru depletion of forest resources, land degradation from logging and land conversion, and loss of plant and animal species. This project complements the ongoing UNDP GEF-Medium sized funded project "Sustainable Management of Mt. Isarog Territories (SUMMIT)" where the PO proponent is one of the partners with CARE-Philippines as the project manager.

The continuous growing of population in the barangay had generally afftected the forest zone of the area. Most of the residents migrated to the upland to settle and to cultivate and convert the forest into agricultural farmland that resulted to a dreadful condition of soil. These factors contributed much to the loss and depletion of the important aspect of the ecosystem. Hence, these conditions will be addressed in the project implementation.
