MetadataShow full item record
Fewer migratory birds visited the Naujan Lake National Park in Naujan town in Oriental Mindoro province last month, a recent bird census showed. From 10,821 birds recorded in 2016, only 6,932 from 36 species were recorded during the survey held last month by the NLNP-Asian Waterbird Census (AWC) team. “The cause of this decline is not yet clear but it could be due to several factors, including the unfavorable weather conditions over the past weeks,” Don Geoff Tabaranza, project development and resource manager of the Mindoro Biodiversity Conservation Foundation Inc. (MBCFI), said.
