A fourth workshop, driving the elaboration of the Taobuid Community Conservation Plan (CCP),
successfully gathered 50 Taobuid members from different communities, as well as Taobuid
representatives at station 1, Magtankob, Barangay Poypoy, Calintaan.
Common ground and basis of understanding were found to address the different points of the
agenda of the day, including the management of the zones as defined by the ENIPAS, formulating
specific actions to address threats and concerns and the creation of a wider tamaraw safe zone
beyond the Strict Protection Zone.
The goal of the CCP (Fasadan noggalaga fagbanwanan Taobuid ay mangilafang sadbasad MIBNP in
the Taobuid language) is to propose and formalize a mechanism that would avoid or solve conflicting
situations between the park office and Taobuid due to misunderstanding, miscommunication, and
lack of information on each other’s activities and initiatives, while enabling to create a larger “safe
reproduction zone” for wildlife and tamaraw. The CCP aims also to be a testimony of the wisdom and
culture of the Taobuid so as it can be transmitted to future generations.
