About this book

Language: English

The Philippine Crocodile: Ecology, Culture and Conservation documents the efforts to save one of the most severely threatened animals on the planet: the Philippine crocodile. Relentless hunting, the widespread use of destructive fishing methods and the massive conversion of wetlands have led to the disappearance of this endemic species in most parts of the archipelago. But extinction is not inevitable. The Philippine Crocodile: Ecology, Culture and Conservation describes a conservation project in the northern Sierra Madre on Luzon. Here, rural communities and local governments are actively engaged in the protection of the Philippine crocodile and its freshwater habitat. There is a future for the Philippine crocodile in the wild!
