Strengthening Community-Based Biodiversity Conservation Initiatives
Strengthening Community-Based Biodiversity Conservation Initiatives
The project aims to undertake activities for the conservation and protection of Nug-as forest and its endemic wildlife through participatory community-based approach. The project site is one of the sites identified by HARIBON Foundation as an important Bird Area and as a key conservation site of West Visayas. Specifically, the forest supports a significant population of two (2) endangered species of birds endemic to Cebu (Cebu flowerpecker and the Black Shama). In addition, it is also home to about 13 species of bats, of which, three (3) species are threatened.

This project proposal was one of the outputs of a PDF-funded project implemented by the CBCF and the Flora and Fauna Institute (FFI).
