Since the beginning of the rainy season, the field research team – in a multi-collaborative effort involving DAF, TCP and the local community – has been working to gather information on tamaraw ecology and habitats. The field team, consisting of DAF’s Mangyan Field Technical Assistants, some Tamaraw Rangers and local Fufuamas (Mangyan elders), have been working with the lead of the Tamaraw Research Officer (Alvaro Gonzalez), looking at the species composition and mouvements in the tamaraw habitat. This is a great opportunity to learn from the local expertise of the Fufuamas who add critical knowledge in our tamaraw conservation mission, and for the protected area management plans.
