Project Summary:
Most of the world’s last 600 Tamaraw (dwarf buffalo) inhabit Mounts Iglit-Baco Natural Park on Mindoro Island in the Philippines, sharing their territory with the indigenous Tau-Buid people, who see their survival as intrinsically linked to that of the Tamaraw. This project aims to enable the Tamaraw population to expand under the stewardship of the Tau-Buid who, on securing formal territorial rights, will be better empowered to sustain themselves and their lands and maintain their cultural associations with the species.
