With only 400 pairs estimated left in the wild, the realm of our National Bird is still under threat.

Along the mountainous spine of the Central Panay Mountain Range lives one of the most threatened hornbills in the world: the Dulungan Hornbill (Rhabdotorrhinus waldeni). Learn more about the conservation work for this species on the island of Panay.
We published “State of the Philippine Birds” to provide up-to-date information on the changing state of Philippine Birds. It is used to serve as guidance in developing better strategies for the conservation of birds in the country.
