Welcome to Mindoro, where along the slopes of Mts. Iglit-Baco roam a dwindling population of small but mighty beasts: the tamaraw.
Welcome to Mindoro, where along the slopes of Mts. Iglit-Baco roam a dwindling population of small but mighty beasts: the tamaraw. These animals are so rare and elusive that they live only in select parts of the Philippines. To lose the tamaraw of the Philippines would be the end of its kind. But why have they been so difficult to save? Who are the people protecting them?
Paco and GRID Editorial Assistant Denise Gonsalves speak to advocates and storytellers Neil del Mundo, Gregg Yan, Nella Lomotan, and Celine Murillo about the Tamaraw Conservation Project, the dedicated Tamaraw Rangers, and what we can all do to help.
Special thanks to Gregg Yan for episode cover images.
