Tamaraw population increases

It’s a surprise comeback – the population of the endangered tamaraw increased by 10% over the past year, and is now at its highest since conservation efforts started. As of April this year, the population stood at 382, a big improvement from a low of less than 100 back in 1969. The tamaraw (Bubalis mindorensis) is the country’s largest and rarest endemic land animal, and are only found in Mindoro. Current conservation efforts are part of the Tamaraw Times Two project, which aims to double the animal’s population from 300 to 600 by 2020. The good news comes as the country marks Tamaraw Month this month.
