Supporting ranger-based data collection and law enforcement in MIBNP (December 2019)

In December 2019, James Slade, Wildlife Crime Prevention Officer at the Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) and Andrew Tilker, Species Conservation Officer at GWC visited the Philippines to continue the work initiated in April 2019 and strengthen the implementation of law enforcement in Mts Iglit-Baco Natural Park using SMART technology (A software that helps organize all info, during ranger patrols). During the visit, the pilot implementation of SMART and data model used in SMART patrolling was reviewed and updated to incorporate inputs of the rangers since the introduction of the technology in May. Strategies to improve patrolling and ways to use SMART in adaptive management was further discussed, as well as the patrol planning feature of SMART. The team composed of PAMO and TCP rangers, GWC and DAF staff visited Stations 2, 3, and 4 in Iglit to further test the updated data model.
