Systems:Terrestrial

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Although populations occurring at higher elevations may currently be subject to fewer threats, populations found at lower elevations are threatened by extensive habitat loss due to agriculture, logging, and infrastructure development.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Its range includes a few protected areas, such as the Aklan River Watershed Forest Reserve. However there is clearly a need for improved protection of remaining forest habitats on the island of Panay, and for rehabilitation of tracts of degraded forest.
