SAN ROQUE INITIATIVE: SAVING PHILIPPINE EAGLES IN LUZON THROUGH RESEARCH, MONITORING AND ADVOCACY
The SRPC and Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) continuously collaborate for the Philippine Eagle Conservation Program in Northern Luzon. The SRPC’s 5-year support to the PEF in the conduct of the Philippine Eagle research, public education and implementation of conservation program in the Cordillera and Caraballo Mountain Ranges paid off to the discovery of the first active Philippine Eagle nest in Luzon Island with a Philippine Eagle pair and a month-old chick in the forest of Calanasan, Apayao Province in April 2015. Further, the PEF had put transmitter to the juvenile eagle to track its movement and dispersal and the range of its habitat and behavior.
For 2015-2016, the PEF continue their study on the breeding behavior and diet, home range and habitat use of the Philippine Eagle pair in Calanasan, study on the movement and dispersal of the juvenile eagle and continuous community and public information campaign in partnership with the DENR-CAR, provincial, municipal and barangay LGUs of Apayao.
