WWF-Philippines works to protect, conserve, and rehabilitate habitats across the country because they are the foundations upon which all of nature thrive. The human impact on habitats have been overlooked for many decades leading to extreme degradation in some ecosystems. Restoring habitats to become lush landscapes once again will greatly benefit entire communities that depend on it for their livelihood and also the biodiversity of life that call it home.

Northeast Palawan - MPAN

Protecting and conserving The Philippines’ marine resources is a collaborative effort involving stakeholders on various levels. By working together with local government units, law enforcement authorities, citizen scientists, academic personnel, and local community partners, the Northeast Palawan Marine Protected Area Network project was able to rise to the challenge of a changing environment and create a long-lasting impact to conserve and protect the abundant marine resources of Palawan.

The Ticao-Burias Pass Protected Seascape is rich with marine resources and biodiversity and it is crucial that there are protection and conservation measures put in place to cushion the impact of a changing climate. WWF-Philippines faced the challenges by forging partnerships with the local governments of 4 provinces and with indigenous peoples whose ancestral lands are within the protected seascape.

Forests for Water

WWF-Philippines’ Forest for Water project has been working in Ipo Watershed since 2016 and continues to make great progress in ensuring that the forests in the Bulacan reservoir are restored to a healthy and productive state. As of 2023, the indigenous Dumagat tribe that reside in the watershed remain central to the project as long-term community partners.
