BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION IN SIBALOM WATERSHED
The project area which is Barangay Danao in Leon serves as the headwater of the Sibalom river that straddles the political boundaries of the towns of Leon, Tigbauan, and portion of Oton. It was classified by DENR as timberland. Elevation ranges from 900 to 1200 meters above sea level. The terrain of the project area was observed to be very steep and gradually descending and forming a series of disconnected hills and valleys in its middle section. The Sibalom Watershed shall cover 100 hectares out of the 5500 hectares of timberland in Danao with patches of natural growth trees thriving along the Sibalom River and creeks.
