3 day multi-stakeholders workshop to boost tamaraw protection coordination

More than 60 representatives from different offices and agencies gathered in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, last October to discuss and set plans for future steps on tamaraw conservation. The 3-day workshop was co-organized by DAF in collaboration with its international partners from Re:Wild, ZSL and IUCN AWCSG and the Philippine DENR.

The agenda included a one day review of the Tamaraw Conservation and Management Action Plan with updates on the status of tamaraw 5 years after the Population and Habitat Viability Assessment workshop in 2018. It was followed by a one day discussion on how to increase protection effectiveness by introducing wildlife crime prevention science then a one day brainstorming using a value-based decision process to explore the feasibility for translocation and ex-situ intervention.

More workshops and meetings will be conducted in the coming months to build on the outcomes of this event.
