ASAP Species That We Work On
What We Do
For the past few years, MBCFI has been involved in the conservation of the critically endangered Tamaraw (Bubalus mindorensis), more specifically in the conduct of monitoring, providing technical inputs on management strategies, awareness and education campaigns, and community-building.
One of our involvements includes a collaborative project with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and Chester Zoo, to conduct a dietary analysis using fecal samples from the Tamaraw to identify a vegetation diet list through metabarcoding.
