The MangyanTamaraw Driven Landscape Program was initiated in 2012 on the behalf of the IUCN-SSC (International Union for the Conservation of Nature – Species Survival Commission). This socio-environmental program is developed by the D’ABOVILLE Foundation in partnership with international and national organizations, Philippines authorities and local stakeholders. It focuses its attention on the Critically Endangered Tamaraw, Mindoro’s biodiversity and the residing communities living in the mountainous interior of the Island.
