Philippine Association for Conservation and Development, Inc.
PhilConserve that has been running PESCP since its inception in 2005 has recently become dysfunctional. The NGO will be replaced with PhilinCon, its functional successor that is operating a new project whose goals will closely resemble those of PESCP. The change of names rather than of the agenda has been precipitated by management anomalities impacting PESCP.


Some projects which can also be supported with minor expense:

Livelihood projects
Precautionary development of the upland communities living near or inside the forest: through PESCP as the implementer a number of livelihood projects (pig fattening, carabao breeding, poultry breeding, sloping agriculture, fruit and timber tree nursing/ outplanting, high value cash crop planting) have been provided. Contracted participants are obliged to no longer use the forest for timber and wildlife hunting. Each project costing from 400 to 800 US$.

Hiring of Forest Rangers
To monitor the forests for illegal activities (timber poaching, wildlife hunting) rangers are being hired, costing with insurances included, 1400 US$ per forest ranger per year.

Guarding nests of endangered bird species,
for example, Philippine hornbills: 
to cope with nest poaching, nest guards and community conservationists are being hired with a monthly remuneration of 20 US$/month and a nest incentive of 16 US$ per saved nest.

Support of rescue centers
Rehabilitation and release of endangered wildlife at rescue centers in NW Panay: confiscated / donated birds and other endangered wildlife are rehabilitated till being able to fend for themselves when released; with a hornbill for instance costing annually (food, medicine, caretaking, health monitoring) ca. 200 US$.

This is a sideline activity that complements the management activities on the ground. It is driven by the genuine interest in the biology of threatened species to improve management conditions in the wild and understand the constraints imposed on survival in the wild. Moreover, it is motivated by the sheer desire to understand the functioning of complex ecosystem in a tropical setting of an archipelago that ranks first in the world in terms of biodiversity per unit surface area.
