Freshly arrived from Spain, our new Tamaraw Conservation Research Officer (TCRO), Mr. Fernando Garcia Gil, challenged the mud and the rain of Mts Iglit-Baco Natural Park during this rainy season in order to meet with local DAF team and rangers and get a glimpse of the natural context of the Park.
Fernando’s mission will be in the continuation of Alvaro’s fieldwork, our previous TRO and will concentrate on several aspects:
- Develop alternative census method of tamaraw.
- Initiate deeper experiment on the dynamics of the natural habitat and impact of fire regime in the Park.
- Expand knowledge on the ecology of the tamaraw and other wildlife in several sites in Mindoro.
