DENR 10 CONDUCTS ANNUAL ASIAN WATERFOWL CENSUS IN NORTHERN MINDANAO

To monitor the number of migratory bird that pass through the coastal and wetland areas in Northern Mindanao, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 conducted the Annual Waterfowl Census (AWC) in the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte and Misamis Occidental.

The conduct of the annual waterfowl census will determine the areas frequently visited by migratory birds, its condition as well as the status of coastal and wetland areas which is affected by land conversion, natural calamities and other human activities.

During the 2017 AWC assessment, a total of 1,988 migratory birds of 31 species were identified in ten wetland areas in northern Mindanao that include Pulangi Wetland (NAPOCOR Dam) in Bukidnon; Alubijid Wetland, El Salvador Wetland, Magsaysay Wetland, Opol Wetland, Pangasihan Wetland all from Misamis Oriental; Bonifacio Wetland, Sinacaban Wetland in Misamis Occidental; and Matampay Bukana Wetland and Mukas Karomatan Wetland in Lanao del Norte.  

For 2018 AWC assessment, according to Donato Bojo, a staff from the Protected Areas Management, Biodiversity Conservation Section, DENR field personnel has yet to finalize their reports and as per initial observation, there are possibilities that a decrease in numbers of migratory birds will be observed this year, he added.

Bojo stressed out that the decrease of migratory bird population will be due to external factors observed during the actual counting to include high water level in some fishponds, other sites were converted to commercial areas and the unpredictable weather conditions due to climate change.  

The annual Waterfowl Census is conducted by the DENR simultaneously with other countries along the Austral-Asian bird migration flyway, to provide information on the global status of wetlands. Wetlands, which include lakes, rivers, marshes, mudflats, mangrove swamps, etc., play a vital role in human existence. (RPAO PR No. 01-05-2018)
